Existing SACC rooms are essential to be used for the SACC program only for before and after programming
ONE ADDITIONAL room (gym, pod area, art room, etc.) is needed to support the SACC program at every location
Current SACC location is attached
Designated COVID Care Room can be shared to support both the SACC program and the school-Please confirm the Care Room designation with the SACC staff
A wellness/comfort room will be identified in a separate location of the program so if a child becomes sick, they would be able to be away from children who are not sick, until they were able to go home. Staff supervision should always continue (maintaining 6 feet distance). Gloves, face shield, and disposable face coverings, and gowns will be available in the room. Both staff and child must wear a face covering. Staff should also wear face shield, gloves, and gown
With school and SACC starting on Monday, it is imperative that space is confirmed today and joint procedures for access and use determined

Community Use is OPEN! These are for awareness only. No events are cancelled or declined specifically due to the observance
Cultural Observances are not FCPS Employee Holidays
