HKFS has added several additional precautions to keep families safe during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We will keep programming fun, engaging, and educational with added safety measures. For more information, please see HKFS COVID-19 Policy #008.
Drop off & Pick Up
Drop offs in the morning and pick ups in the afternoon will be one family at a time. Floor markings will indicate where to wait. Please give yourself a bit of extra time for this new process
Children will be grouped into smaller cohorts (or groups) to limit interactions. Family members will be grouped together, staff will be assigned a group, and groups will remain the same through summer.
Personal Protective Equipment
At this time, the Province does not recommend face masks for children. Only symptomatic children will be provided masks.
Hand Washing & Distancing
Regular hand washing will be added to the daily programming schedule. Hand sanitizer and wipes will also be available. Staff and children will all be expected to regularly sanitize their hands. Physical distancing of 2 metres will be mandatory among staff and will be encouraged among children.
Additional staff time has been allocated for thorough daily sanitizing and cleaning. Items that cannot be easily sanitized have been removed, spaces will be cleaned between cohort uses, and all surfaces will be thoroughly sanitized daily.
Many of our regular summer adventures won't be possible this year, but we will take full advantage of Hinton's wonderful outdoor spaces for safe activities such as hikes, games, and outdoor play!
Each day, caregivers will need to truthfully complete a screening questionnaire to ensure their children are safe to attend the program. If a child has been exposed to the virus, has traveled outside of Canada, or is showing symptoms, they will not be permitted to attend. Our Credit Policy has been amended to make this change easier. If children begin showing symptoms during their time at HKFS, they will be isolated and caregivers will need to pick them up immediately.
We appreciate everyone working together to keep HKFS families and staff safe. If you have any questions, please call 780-865-6036. Register online here!
