Considerations for a safe return to school!

This plan was developed to conform to the guidance provided by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) in their July 2020 document entitled: Recovering, Rebuilding and Renewing: The Spirt of New York’s Schools – Reopening Guidance. This plan will be revised and updated as needed to adjust to changing public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 virus and all of the new requirements and regulations which may emerge over time. We solicited input and involvement from the families we serve and our staff during the original drafting of our re-opening plan. We will rely on continued input from all stakeholders as we move forward implementing this plan and as we contemplate any additions or modifications.

The Just Kids’ plan focuses on four critical components

We know our program must be as flexible and as responsive as possible to the needs of our students, families and staff members. We will closely monitor the conditions of our community as the COVID 19 pandemic continues.


Reopening of our schools to provide in-person instruction and therapy in a safe and healthy environment for all children and staff.


Monitoring health protocols and procedures to ensure the effectiveness and appropriateness of our hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting plan.


Containment to prevent spreading of the disease if infection is detected.


Closure if infection cannot be contained or if closure is otherwise necessary and/or required by the state or local department of health.
