COVID-19 Safety Precautions
The Brooklyn STEAM Center has taken a number of steps to help limit the potential spread of COVID-19. These steps include:
Limiting our pathway programs from two sessions per day to one, in order to avoid cross contamination of computers, tools, and equipment being used by different groups of students each day
Minimizing our classes sizes to no more than 15 students each; despite having larger rooms with social distancing capacities beyond that number
Installing hand sanitizer stations, posted floor markers, social distancing guidelines and protective barriers in various areas of our building
Randomized temperature checks to students and staff daily
Visitor control protocols to screen visitors and limit the number of people who enter our school space daily
Ongoing cleaning and disinfecting of high touch spaces during the school day, and daily overnight deep cleaning of all surfaces using electrostatic sprayers and UV technology
Outlined spaces within our classroom in order to facilitate social distancing
The availability of mask, face shields, thermometers, and hand sanitizers to students, staff and family members who need them
The installation of hospital grade MERV air filters within our HVAC systems, which are serviced and changed frequently
Encouraging students to stay home if they are feeling sick, washing their hands regularly for at least 20-seconds/using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content, and wearing a mask when in public or at school
The health and safety of all our community members is our number one priority, and we are taking every precaution necessary to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and to provide the optimal learning environment for our scholars.
