HappyFeet COVID-19 Updates
Updated Last: April 22, 2020
Weekly Classes at Partner Schools
Due to Governor Inslee's Stay at Home Order issued on March 25, 2020 onsite classes have been cancelled at all partner schools to help do our part to contain the COVID-19 spread in our communities. As a result, we launched our online programming that includes recorded online classes daily and live Zoom classes for all active families. Once the order is lifted we will return to our schools and continue to abide by our partner schools increased safety protocal.
We have begun live Zoom classes with partner schools that are able so that we can continue to provide our services for those little one's attending school. All schools with virutal classes have received thier own set of "Bob" soccer balls for all little one's to use during this time. Currently the following schools have virtual classes: A Journey School, Kids Centre - Post Alley & Spring Street, Kids N Us - Everett, North Queen Anne Childcare, Smart Start Day School, The Goddard School - Bothell.
We are a small local company that is working to continue to provide for our coaches so that they are able to provide for themselves and their families. We greatly appreciate your continued support during this time. We are looking to continue to abide by our 30 day cancellation policy, so that we are able to plan accordingly as it pertains to staff compensation. Any potential makeup classes or refunds due to extended class cancellations at schools will be determined once we return to the center and begin classes again.
We do understand that this crisis may also be effecting our families financially and we urge you to reach out if that is the case. Our intention is not to upset or burden our families in anyway. Should you feel these policies do not fit the situation, please let us know so potential adjustments can be made accordingly.
Ballard League: The Boys and Girls Club of Ballard has determined that our standard Spring League 2020 will be cancelled. We are deeply saddened by this news as this league has been a staple in the community for nearly 10 years. All registrations will be transferred to our Fall 2020 League. Should you wish to request a refund please reach out to Dennis Ho at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking to have a shorter league this Spring once it is deemed safe to play. Please check back soon or your emails for more information.
Lynnwood League: We are planning to continue to have our Lynnwood Spring League once Governor Inslee's order is lifted. Please continue to look for emails with updates. At this point, we are hoping to begin sessions on May 16th. Should the league be shortened or should the new dates not work for your family refunds will be given accordingly. All families that continued to be registered will have complimentary access to our online platform and can register here.

Increased Safety Measures
Once we return to in person classes and begin our league sessions we will continue to take increased precautions to ensure the safety of our HappyFeeters and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The precautions include but are not limited to the following:
- All staff is asked to remain home should they feel sick regardless of symptoms to ensure we are not spreading other illness that may cause others to become at risk for further complications should they contract COVID-19.
- All staff that shows any symptoms of COVID-19 are required to remain out of child care centers for at least 14 days or until a negative COVID-19 test is received.
- Our "Bob" soccer balls and equipment will be disinfected according to CDC guidelines after each school.
- Coaches will wash hands before entering and leaving a school.
- Coaches will refrain from high fives and activities that increase the likelihood of spreading disease.
- We will move to "invisible Stampys" and/or stickers.
These precautions will continue to be updated based on all new information that is shared and recommended by the CDC and our child care partners.
