Here at The Discovery Tree Academy, our top priority is always the health and safety of the children in our care, their families, and our staff. All of our locations will remain open during regular scheduled hours. We have partnered with a leading cleaning company, Enviro-Masters, using Sani-Guard, registered with the EPA to kill Coronaviruses.
Protecting Your Children
As new cases of COVID-19 are discovered throughout the nation and in Florida, we continue to be on high alert concerning the safety of our students, staff and families.
We have now initiated enhanced cleaning and safety protocols and continue to stay up to date on CDC guidelines to keep our school clean and safe. Enviro-Masters provides weekly restroom hygiene and electrostatic spraying services. The electrostatic spraying service, called Sani-Guard, uses a disinfectant containing active ingredients that are EPA-registered to kill Coronaviruses.
Sani-Guard also addresses dangerous disease-causing pathogens such as MRSA, Norovirus, Influenza H1N1, HIV, Hepatitis, E. coli, Streptococcus, Salmonella, and Tuberculosis.

The Discovery Tree Academy staff will continue with the following safety protocols:
- Soft toys that children come into contact with will be laundered daily.
- Everyone, including teachers, entering the building will have their temperature checked.
- No One who has or who has had close contact with someone who has traveled on a cruise, out of the country or in an area identified as a COVID-19 “hotspot” area in the last 14 days will be allowed in the building.
- Teachers will be monitored daily for fever.
- Children who present with a fever of 99.9 degrees, will be removed from contact with other child and their parents will be notified. If their fever rises to 101 degrees, their parents must take them home immediately.
- Teachers will continue to reinforce hand washing hygiene protocols with themselves, other staff members, and the children.
- Children are required to wash their hands prior to entering the classroom each morning.
As a reminder, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), coronavirus spreads mostly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when a person coughs or sneezes. These droplets may encounter a person’s hands or other surfaces.
The CDC emphasizes that the most important thing we can do to stay safe is to wash our hands and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. We encourage our parents to consistently help reinforce frequent and proper hand washing and hygiene techniques for themselves and their families.
