HEALTH & SAFETY PROCEDURES

Health and Safety at Ütopya:

Teaching children safety and hygiene has always been an important part of our curriculum, school routine and atmosphere and both our classrooms and our garden are equipped with wash basins. How to maintain healthy hygiene practices, including the proper way of washing of hands, cleaning their noses, table manners and eating habits, are taught early on during the first weeks of school education.

Ütopya has a sickness policy that requires a doctor’s report before a child can return to school following a contagious illness, because the safety of our students remains one of our highest priorities.

COVID-19 Measures:

During the pandemic, we began working more closely with a doctor who helped us establish new policies and procedures with regards to overall health precautions and social distancing standards at each of our campuses. Our doctor follows up with the daily health checks of our staff and students.

We have introduced well-marked social distancing rules both outdoors and indoors and taken the necessary precautions of labeling and separating students’ supplies. Beyond these measures, we have transitioned to doing Outdoor Education and are committed to this through the early fall until extreme weather no longer permits us to be outside.
