COVID-19

In order to create the safest environment possible for participants, families and staff, White Pine has created new policies on how programs will run this fall.  Families who feel that they cannot adhere to these policies or have questions about them should immediately contact Todd Dupont (todd@whitepineprograms.org) to have a discussion whether or not White Pine is a good fit for this year. Our normal cancellation policy remains in effect and can be reviewed here

Our intentions are to be as transparent as possible with our operational plans and will host the latest versions available in this section of our website.

Below are links to the most up to date policies and guidelines to which White Pine will adhere for the 2020-21 program year.

White Pine’s Adherence to CDC Guidelines
We’ve taken the CDC guidelines for safely opening businesses and schools and mapped them to our program protocols.

COVID-19 Exposure Rules & Program Participation
In light of recent growing cases in York County, this document clearly outlines, with examples, when program participants may or may not return to program.

Health & Safety Guidelines
These guidelines outline our health and safety protocols and staff, family and participant expectations of behavior. It also details our sick policy for participants and staff. In addition, the document provides details on our policies around gathering, the use of face masks and sanitation practices.

Program Delivery Model
This document explains our plan for delivering programs in 2020-21. It outlines our plans should guidelines around gathering in the State of Maine or New Hampshire (where we operate programs) change. This includes both caps on gathering and full state shut-downs.
