Dear Young Chefs Academy families, Nothing at YCA is more important than the safety, health and well-being of our students and their families as well as our staff. We want you to know that is always our highest priority. While the coronavirus story continues to develop, we wanted to share with you the steps we are taking to keep you and your children safe before, during, and after your visit to our academy. For thirteen years, YCA has always prioritized a clean and sanitized facility.
We have high regular standards and recently added even more reach to our normal sanitary practices. We follow the strict protocols directed by the Frisco Health and Food Safety, passing with the highest attainable score. Our standards include, but are not limited to, all surfaces of equipment, utensils, tableware, kitchenware and other food-contact surfaces. We also always take care of restrooms and common waiting and greeting areas. And we added to our normal sanitizing practices the cleaning of high-traffic surfaces such as door handles, and even more frequent hand-washing of our students and staff.
As always, we are asking any student, parent, guardian, or our staff to PLEASE refrain from attending the academy while ill or showing signs of illness. As an added precaution, we will be asking every person that visits the academy: · Do you presently have a fever, difficulty breathing, sneezing or coughing? · Have you been in contact with anyone who has traveled abroad or may be infected with the new coronavirus? If the answer is YES to either of those questions, for the safety of our students and staff, we will have to ask you to leave.
Will we be canceling classes? We are continuing to monitor the rapidly evolving situation and will remain vigilant and committed to heeding the guidance from our public health officials Frisco Health and Food Safety - and stand ready to take every precaution necessary in order to keep you, your children, and our staff safe. We will communicate further if in spite of the high sanitary procedures we are following, we are advised to reschedule a program.
Please stay safe and wash your hands! Sincerely, Young Chefs Academy -----------------------
