Health and Safety:

Can we carpool?

Yes, If you do please make sure to let the lead Educator know in advance by email if another parent is picking up or dropping off your child(ren.) On Monday that is Jmurray@pearlstonecenter.org and on Sunday that is Skatsampis@pearlstonecenter.org

How will pick up and drop off work?

We are encouraging one identified adult per family be responsible for the drop-off and pick-up of the child(ren) as best as possible. Pre-screening will be required, and will be monitored by Pearlstone Security each time you arrive on Campus.

Will my child have to wear a mask?

No, current CDC guidelines does not not require outdoor masking, if you would like your child to wear a mask please pack one and a spare for them. We will be reminding all students of proper hygiene and no student is allowed to come to class if they are sick.

Extreme Heat or Cold Days or Heavy Rain Days:

This is an outdoor program and participants should be dressed and ready to be outdoors for the full day. After consultation with the Department of Health, ONLY for periods of the day when it’s not possible to remain outside (heavy rain, thunderstorms, extreme heat), we may utilize some of our indoor spaces on the campus. Based on the Department of Health code in the event of a Full day of inclement weather we reserve the right to cancel that day.

Cleaning and Disinfection Procedures

All materials and equipment will be sanitized between use.

What does a sample day look like?

This program is designed to be flexible in schedule and activities . There will be a morning block of activities and an afternoon block with lunch in between. Each group leader will choose the activities they want to do with their group based on weather and skill/interest of the participants in the class and have pre-scheduled activities throughout the session. We are excited for groups to explore the woods and connect to the land and the skills they learn!

What is your refund policy?

If we have to cancel a class for any reason that cannot be made up on another date (our Winter session has snow dates built in) your program fees will be pro-rated/ refunded, or can be rolled forward to another Pearlstone Program. If you miss a class the fees are not refunded. If you choose to cancel your registration with less than a months notice, or in the middle of a session, then you will not receive a refund. If there are extenuating circumstances for missing/cancelling a class please email skatsampis@pearlstonecenter.org
