MCCS CDCs/SACs

 

The health and welfare of the children entrusted to our care at MCCS Child Development Centers (CDCs) and School Age Care (SAC) facilities island-wide will always be our #1 priority. Out of abundant concern for the health and safety of the children, as well as our MCCS employees providing care, MCCS and other U.S. Forces Japan and U.S. government agencies on island have enacted effective, proactive mitigation measures to protect children, employees and our military community at-large from the spread of COVID-19. The success of these mitigation measures has allowed our CDCs here to remain open in support of service members and their families. 

We are actively monitoring the situation in coordination with public healthcare professionals and command elements. If warranted, we will close the CDCs with enough advance notification to allow parents (and their work supervisors, if applicable) to make appropriate arrangements such as family care plans, telework or leave. All of us with MCIPAC/MCB Camp Butler are committed to giving our parents all possible options to work and take care of their parental responsibilities. We truly appreciate our partnership with our SOFA families and appreciate your support and flexibility during this time.

 

CDCs/SACs will continue to operate with the following added precautions:  

 
  • 100% hand cleaning by parents and children at drop off.
  • Febrile (feverish for any reason) children must be reported to Preventive Medicine. Febrile children cannot return for a minimum of one week after symptoms star
  • All facilities will be sanitized—including entry doors, handles, seating, handrails, doorknobs, computer terminals, pens, phones, tables, play mats, toys, recreational/play equipment, etc.—regularly (hourly and after each use as applicable). 
  • Cash will not be accepted as tender until further notice.
  • Limit all parent involvement in program activities.
  • Limit the number of hourly reservations.
  • Physical program newsletters/event flyers will not be distributed; electronic delivery will be used where feasible.
  • Family-style dining/self-serve will be postponed until further notice. Caregivers will serve children at all times.
  • Number of children eating at one time will be reduced for social distancing.
  • During naptime, children will be placed in the head-to-toe position, 3-feet apart (normal procedure). 
  • All buses used to transport children between the SAC Centers and schools are equipped with vinyl-covered seats and will be disinfected with bleach/water solution after every run (normal procedure).
  • Parents, staff and children highly encouraged and reminded to thoroughly wash their hands upon entry and regularly throughout the day.
