North Campus Health and Safety Plan Summary

Anticipated Launch Date: 7/1/20

Milagre Kids School – North Campus, is a Licensed Private School for the education of students with autism, ages 6-21. Our North Campus has 7 students and 9 staff spread across 4 classrooms encompassing just over 3,200 sq. ft., allowing ample space for social distancing.  We provide 1:1 staffing and close supervision of our students, which makes their adherence to safety and hygiene protocols easily achievable. Our level of staffing also allows for the cleaning and disinfecting, listed below, to occur throughout the school day, as well as close monitoring of health throughout the school day. All supplies to carry out the Health and Safety Plan have been acquired, and a professional cleaning company has been hired.
