To adhere to health directives as per government guidelines, please note that Teacher’s Pet has made some changes and modifications to our programs to ensure safety for everyone.

The exciting news is that most of our programs will still include interactive, hands-on learning experiences where students will work in groups or individually. The physical setup of students for our programs will be dependent on the program as well as school and health guidelines.

Safety Modifications

Our safety modifications include but are not limited to the following:

  • The Presenter will follow all Alberta Health Guidelines including the self-assessment screening tool.
  • The Presenter will be wearing PPE as per school and Alberta Health Guidelines.
  • The Presenter will meet with you to discuss the classroom protocols you have in place and ensure that you are comfortable with the setup before the session begins.
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing measures including hand sanitizer at each station and program materials are cleaned before, during and after programs.
  • To limit physical contact, we require that students have their own pencils, crayons, scissors, glue sticks, and other basic school supplies ready to be used during the in-school field trip program (as needed). We will not be providing these materials at this time.

Safety Recommendations

  • Please provide students with the opportunity to wash their hands before the presentation.
  • When arranging desks for stations (if applicable), allow plenty of space between groups.
  • Student desks should face forward and/or away from each other when possible.
  • We understand that every school district has different protocols regarding wearing masks. If masks are optional in your class, we encourage students to wear a mask during the presentation, but it is not mandatory.

COVID Change & Cancellation Policy

These are very unpredictable times and we understand that there may have to be changes or cancellations at the last minute. Please contact us as soon as possible if you need to change or cancel at the last minute due to a COVID issue.

There is also the possibility that we may have to change or cancel a program at the last minute due to a COVID issue. We will do everything we can to reschedule your program as soon as possible and appreciate your understanding in this matter.

Please note that we will continue adapting our health procedures to adhere to the new updates released from Alberta Health. Thank you for understanding and your continued support as we work together to navigate these new health measures.
