At this time, we are proceeding (cautiously) with registration for in-person fall programming. We are carefully in step with CDC and state guidelines and will be sure to make you aware if something changes that prohibits or recommends a change in our programming plans.

Notre Dame of Maryland University (“NDMU” or “the University”) adheres to federal, State, and Baltimore City COVID-19 related laws, regulations, and health guidelines and if for any reason the University makes the decision not to allow in-person programming in the fall of 2021, payment will be fully refunded on a pro-rated basis if activities have already begun.

Daily Health Check

Each day, parents or caregivers will be required to complete a self-screening COVID assessment for their child prior to arriving on campus and show the “green” clearance to attend school that day. If the self-screening indicates the child is not clear to attend campus activities (e.g., a “red” not clear notification), the child will not be allowed on campus until a green clearance indicator is presented.

Closure & Quarantine Recommendations

A childcare program should enact closure and quarantine close contacts if:

  1. There is a person (childcare staff, child, or other person) with laboratory confirmed or probable COVID-19 who was present in the childcare program building within the 2 days prior to developing COVID-19 symptoms or while symptomatic, AND had close contact as defined by the CDC, with program staff and/or children.
  2. There is a person (childcare staff, child, or other person) with laboratory confirmed or probable COVID-19 who is asymptomatic, was present in the childcare program building within the 2 days prior to the date that they were tested, AND had close contact as defined by the CDC, with program staff and/or children.
  3. There is a person (childcare staff, child, or other person) with COVID-19-like illness who was present in the childcare program building within the 2 days prior to developing symptoms and does NOT receive a negative RT-PCR test or another specific diagnosis from a health care provider.

Note: If the person with confirmed or probable COVID-19 is a parent (or other household member) of a child in care and their only close contact with the childcare program staff and/or children was with their own child, the child should quarantine BUT if the child is asymptomatic, the program should not need to close or quarantine any other persons.

If a COVID outbreak only impacts one class, other ACP classes may continue uninterrupted if there has been no exposure. Parents of children in non-impacted or exposed classrooms who may wish to remove their child from school may lose fees paid.
