ASA Care during COVID

ASA will continue to provide quality child care for students, Kindergarten through Fifth grade, during these uncertain times of Covid-19 mitigation. Whether school is in session or out, ASA will be open for After School Adventures and/or All Stay Adventures where students will participate in online Learning Labs in conjunction with the Bellingham School District.

We consider it a privilege to partner with parents and guardians in our community, raising children to play well and grow well!

It is our honor to serve you and we deeply care about the health and wellness of everyone. To assure you we are taking necessary precautions, the following procedures are now in place…

Washing Hands

Adults and children wash and sanitize hands upon arrival and throughout the day.

Sanitizing Surfaces

Our dedicated staff is putting extensive effort into sanitizing and disinfecting our facilities, all touchable surfaces, equipment and toys, each night.

Health Screening

Each morning at check-in, we will have a staff member screening staff and students. Any individuals with detected symptoms will be sent home.

Small Groups

Thanks to our unique facilities at The Firs, we are able to keep kids in small groups throughout the day, to follow rules and advice from health officials and the CDC. Groups will be no larger than 10, including students and staff.
