For the safety and well-being of our entire community, Elder Tree has adopted a Covid-19 vaccination policy that will require, with few exceptions, that all program participants 16 and older be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus before they will be allowed to participate in forest school.
Since our program for children 3+ is a Mommy and Me program, parents are considered to be "program participants."
The policy will allow for medical exemptions consistent with CDC guidance and manufacturer labeling on contraindications and precautions. Requests for medical exemptions will require a letter from a medical doctor.
Participants may also request accommodations based on disability and deferrals are available for those who are pregnant.
Amazing programs like Elder Tree Forest school can run safely when we abide by public health recommendations for the sake of the greater good. We are all connected and each one of us makes a difference.
