CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Overnight programs involving minors are restricted. Academic in-person programs/events must be approved by your Dean.   Once approved, all programs must continue to follow the Children on Campus policy, requirements and COVID guidelines as outlined in the COVID Planning Checklist

Apply the Rule of “3s”

Progress: 0%
  • Children should not be in secluded areas with adults
  • If one-on-one interaction is required, meet in open, well-illuminated spaces with windows
  • Ensure a third party is included on all communications
    Exceptions:

    • Healthcare provider
    • Legally required exceptions
    • Expressly authorized by the program administrator

Children under the age of 14 who are entrusted to our care must be supervised until they are safely released to an authorized responsible adult

  • Programs should obtain clear instructions identifying who is authorized to pick up and drop off children
  • Establish drop-off and pick-up schedules and locations
  • Require proof of identity before releasing children
  • Do not release to anyone other than authorized person(s)

Wherever children are, their safety is a vital concern to everyone on campus. What could go wrong? Anything! Consider some possible situations:

  • Accidental injuries
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Medical problems
  • Child abuse
  • Lost children
  • Theft and violence

We want you to be aware and prepared – not scared! Fear and anxiety is best managed by education, communication, and preparation.

This training is intended to offer guidance on practical risk-reduction measures to
provide a physically and psychologically secure setting while managing balance and common sense.
