Wear a mask

Wash your hands

Watch your distance

Having read and studied a variety of documents from the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) regarding the safe reopening of childcare programs during the fall of 2020, St. Mark’s PDO has designed a plan and protocols for the commencement of our program in September.
