Croissy for English speaking citizens

Croissy-sur-Seine maintains the feeling of a small unspoilt town which still has many family run businesses based along a high street which retains a lovely community atmosphere.

Enjoy the charm of a stroll along the Seine while experiencing the historical neighborhood named "Le Pays des Impressionnistes".

Croissy is also known as the home to the British School of Paris which is located in a large green campus catering for English-speaking children of over 50 nationalities (about 70% of them British) from ages 3-18.

Following the Prime Minister’s speech regarding our national de-confinement strategy, the Croissy Town Hall team have worked on the impact of these national decisions on our local organisation. Nothing can be improvised, everything has to be prepared in advance. The state has identified a serious role for the municipalities. We will assume our responsibilities and we endeavour to do everything to make de-confinement as simple and as safe as possible for the “Croissillons”.

The end of lock down simply tells us that the reanimation services in the hospitals are able to welcome new patients and the priority for our country is to be able to revive its economic activity. It is necessary to reopen schools, kindergartens and after-school centres to reduce social and territorial inequalities. We also know how crucial childcare is for our economic activity. It is necessary to be able to access social life again, to see others again and to learn to live with the presence of Covid-19.

We must therefore remain vigilant and in solidarity with one another. We must keep a collective spirit and force ourselves to live with the strict application of distancing gestures (social distancing).

 

Priority information

1. When will the town hall distribute masks for all ages?

The town ordered 12,000 masks for all ages. This order was placed as soon as the health standards for manufacturing masks were validated by the government. We ordered them for adults and for children under 15.

Faced with the restrictions set by the government for the distribution of all mask orders by communities, companies and authorised resellers, our entire order couldn’t be delivered at the same time.

“Croissillons” were asked to fill out a form to indicate the number of people in their household to be able to distribute the necessary number of masks. The town, according to procedures which are adjusted day by day depending on the delivery of orders, provides each inhabitant with a mask, washable up to 50 times.

We will also distribute masks purchased by the Agglomeration Community, the Yvelines department and the Île-de-France Region. Once again, orders are delivered every day, we will keep getting back to you for distribution methods.

2. Is the travel certificate still compulsory?

The Prime Minister announced Tuesday April 28th during his presentation of the de-confinement plan, that it is possible to circulate without certification from the 11th of May. All trips must be made within a maximum radius of 100 km from home. "Travel more than 100 km from home will only be possible for an urgency, family or professional reason". For these, a certificate will be required.

If you are an employee and if your professional activity requires traveling by public transport between 6.30 a.m. and 9.30 a.m. and between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays, your employer must complete the certificate of travel.

3. Has waste collection started again as usual?

  • Reopening of the waste deposit (déchetterie) from the 11th of May 11 for the towns of Carrières-sur-Seine, Chatou and Croissy-sur-Seine

  • Resumption of bulky waste collection from the 2nd of May

  • Resumption of plant waste collection from the 12th of May

  • Resumption of glass collection from the 20th of April

  • Resumption of toxic waste collection from the 16th of May

4. Reopening of the Croissy market on Sunday the 17th of May

  • We reopened the market with less stands at the beginning. This was done to guarantee all health security requirements and to gradually support the resumption of pre-crisis activity.

  • The stands are arranged in such a way as to ensure smooth circulation of the public.

  • Likewise, “Croissillons” are also asked to respect the distancing gestures. Wearing a mask is highly recommended on the market.

  • We test and evaluate the market continuously. Evaluation of our progress will aid our recovery

 

Education/childcare:

4. Are your children able to go back to school?

The school directors contacted all the families to evaluate the number of priority children and the number of families volunteering for the reopening. The teachers confirmed directly the families.

The day of 11th of May was devoted to the organization by the teaching staff and the directors. The reopening of state schools started gradually from Tuesday the 12th of May. The usual timetables are kept in all 4 state schools. Morning and evening welcoming hours are maintained for children attending school. They will be welcomed only on the days they are to be present at school.

Given the presence of our catering and maintenance teams to fully ensure the sanitary measures implemented during school and extracurricular times, catering is not currently planned. Therefore, families are asked to provide a cold meal in a bag/tupperware with a cold freezer-block, cutlery and a water bottle which will be taken in the classes. The animators and the assistants are of course present for the supervision of the children. Meals will be billed at the “PAI” rate (billing for the staff only and reservations required).

The gradual reopening of the colleges in France is planned from the 18th of May. We are waiting for the government confirmation of our department colour to be able to open our college.

5. Are children of mobilised priority people welcomed in school?

Yes, children of mobilised people are welcomed as a priority, in nursery, school and in leisure centres on Wednesdays.

6. Are our local police officers assisting the main municipal school points to secure the arrival of the children?

Yes.

7. How are Wednesday leisure centres organised in the local state schools?

Receptions are provided in the 4 leisure centers of the town at the same hours as usual, from 8:00 to 18:30. Children are welcomed on a half-day basis, with or without meals. CM2 students are welcomed at school reception and not at “Espace Jeunes”. Registration is compulsory via the citizen portal. The number of children admitted is limited to 12 children per room in elementary and 8 in kindergarten. It depends as well on the number of supervisors and room available (class rooms are not used).

Our catering and maintenance teams are present to fully ensure the sanitary measures in place. Canteens have not been planned so far. Families will therefore provide a cold meal in a bag/tupperware with a cold freezer-block, cutlery and water bottle which will be taken in the classes.

The billing for reception is as usual subject to the family quota. The meal will also be billed at the “PAI” rate. Reservations required and subject to reception capacities.

8. How is the reopening of nurseries organised?

The directors contacted the families to evaluate the number of priority children and the number of volunteering families. The reception of your child (ren) was the subject of an individual communication between you and the director or the Early Childhood service.

The number of children accommodated in the two nurseries is limited to 10 children per room and according to the number of professional staff present. There is no flexibility on the number of supervision or on the diplomas of the agents.


9. What hygiene measures are in place to accommodate the children?

During the confinement period, all schools and recreation centres were maintained, cleaned and disinfected by municipal staff. Before the reopening of the schools, the town disinfected all public facilities. The social distancing rule has to be respected (at least one meter) in all structures except nurseries. However, it is necessary to underline the difficulties that this represents with children, more particularly in kindergarten classes. Break times are also adapted to this organisation. The sanitary system, set up for everyone's safety, increases the waiting time at the entrance. Thank you for showing patience and understanding. Parents are asked to take their child's temperature every day before going to school or any childcare facility. In case of temperature (+ 37.8 °) or symptoms, your child should not go to the site and the parents will have to seek advice from doctors. The use of masks is made compulsory for adults. The Ministry of National Education therefore made available masks knows as “general public” to teachers, in direct contact with pupils. The town did the same for all municipal staff. For elementary children, wearing a mask is not compulsory, but children can be fitted with it by their parents if they wish (from 10 years old). The town provides masks one per child from week 21. For children in kindergarten, wearing a mask is prohibited. In kindergarten and elementary school, each child has to wash their hands in an organized way before entering. During the day, students are obliged to wash their hands before and after each new activity, at least once every two hours. The same precautionary principles are adopted for all adults entering the structures (teachers, animators, service personnel, assistants, technical personnel, etc.).

10. How are the structures cleaned and maintained during the day while the children are present?

Service personnel disinfect regularly, throughout the building; stair rails, door handles, switches etc... In rooms; tables, chairs, shelves, mice, keyboards, computers, playful or educational objects. The toilets are cleaned several times a day with special vigilance. After each recreation, the supply of equipment and products necessary for hygiene will remain a priority. In the structures, in order to be able to perform all maintenance tasks and meet the expectations of disinfection and cleaning of the establishment, the catering staff will be released from catering time. Within the rules of physical distance, respect of a minimum distance of one meter between each person. This will avoid direct contact and respiratory and / or droplet contamination. This must be respected in all contexts and all spaces (the arrival area and surroundings of the school, recreation area, corridors, covered playground). Manual exchanges of balloons, toys, pencils etc are avoided or accompanied by disinfection procedures after each use. All school staff are trained in barrier measures, social distancing rules and the wearing of masks for themselves and for the children in their care if necessary. This training will always be adapted to the age of the children for whom they are responsible.

11. How will a suspect case be managed in the reception structures?

In case of doubt about a child's symptoms, a temperature measurement is immediately carried out by a professional supervisor. If symptoms are suggestive, the child will be isolated. Parents of the child are notified and required to pick him/her up. The child will not be accepted again at school or any childcare facility without the presentation of a medical authorisation. The following measures can also be adopted; Diagnosis of all students in the same group of the same level if necessary. - Closure of the group / class / section of the same level if necessary with quarantine of the concerned students for 14 days.

12. What is the role of parents on a daily basis?

Parents have to ensure that strict hand hygiene is carried out on departure and return home.

In addition to monitoring the appearance of symptoms in their child, parents are asked to take their child's temperature daily before leaving for a childcare facility. In case of temperature (+ 37.8 °) or suggestive symptoms, the child should not go to the site and the parents will have to seek advice from a GP.

Parents are asked to verify in the morning that each child has all their own school materials and meal if they plan to eat at school. Parents have a key role in respecting children's barrier gestures (explanation, provision of disposable tissues, mask if necessary, etc.).

The return to the community being on a voluntary basis, we invite each parent to trust and show respect towards our teams for the success of this experience which must be conducted with serenity and security.

Parents will not be allowed to enter schools, even in kindergarten. It is best if only one parent accompanies the child to school. The reception of children will be organized so that there is no group of parents at the entrance to the school. Volunteer parents could be present in front of the schools to help manage flows and enforce barrier gestures.

13. I don't know when my child should go to school

The school contacted the families from Thursday the 7th of May and gave all the details on the reopening. The takeover is managed directly by the director and the teachers. Organisational differences may be proposed between nurseries and elementary schools

14. How do I know which group my child is in?

The establishments communicate the information to parents through the usual channels: SMS, electronic mail, display, telephone.

15. Why only bring half the classes?

The government wanted a gradual and reassuring return, allowing the needs of students to be taken into account and allaying their legitimate concerns after the confinement period. The reduced staff will thus allow personalised support. They will also facilitate the learning of "barrier" gestures (hand washing, absence of physical contact) and their implementation.

16. What should you do if your child is sick?

Please keep him at home and to consult his GP.

17. Can the Covid-19 test be organized in the establishment or nursery for my child and for the staff?

No, tests are not carried out in the establishments. The Covid-19 tests are carried out, under conditions, by health care professionals in specialised places.

18. I would like my child to wear a mask. Will supervisors accept?

The wearing of the mask is authorized for elementary students (from 10 years old) who have to put it on during recess and when leaving school. It is prohibited in kindergarten.

19. Will health recommendations be communicated to children?

In accordance with their objectives, the supervisors will play an educational role in the learning of "barrier" gestures by the students, which are also very useful in their lives outside the community.

20. Are the exits maintained?

No going out can be scheduled until the end of the school year even if the government authorises school transportation to accompany children to schools. Discovery classes and stays, both inside and outside the territory, are also suspended until further government instructions.

21. Will school holidays be maintained?

For the summer holidays, the objective is, at this stage, to maintain the calendar as planned. In addition, tutoring modules for students who need them will be implemented at the end of August. The government's decision will be known on the 2nd of June.

22. What should I do to protect my child?

You can regularly remind her/him of the barrier gestures and provide reassuring explanations about the current situation. It is also important to ensure the balance of the daily rhythm between sleep and awake time but also between intellectual activity and physical activity.

23. How will my child continue to learn if he cannot go back to school?

Educational continuity will be maintained and regular contact between the student and their teacher will be organised.

24. Who should I contact if I have a question about the school?

The school director and the teacher provide you the information relating to your child's educational follow-up.

25. Who should I contact if I have a question about extracurricular activities and school meals?

The Early Childhood Education and Childhood and Youth Department have been mobilised since the beginning of the crisis to provide you all the information relating to the organization and methods of extracurricular activities: familleatcroissy [dot] com.

30. Will it be possible to finally go to the cemetery?

The cemeteries were closed by government decision on 17th March. However, not all Prefects have issued a closure order which created confusion. In Croissy, we follow the Prime Minister's directives.

This is already possible and was possible since the 17th May, provided that no more than 20 were present during the ceremonies (Undertaking staff included).

Social distancing between people is an essential condition for the practice of any physical activity.

These activities can be done:

  • Without limitation of duration of practice

  • Without certificate

  • Within less than 100 km from home

  • By limiting gatherings to a maximum of 10 people

  • Only outdoor activities

  • Without using any common changing rooms which can be made available for outdoor activities

The social distancing requirements as follows:

  • A distance of 10 meters minimum between two people for cycling and jogging activities

  • A sufficient physical distance of around 4m² for outdoor activities such as tennis, yoga, fitness for example

  • Additional specifications depending on the activities are provided by the Ministry of Sports

Sports activities which do not allow this distance (collective sports, combat sport) will not be able to restart immediately. The Ministry of Sports offers an exhaustive list of disciplines and sports affected by this provisional ban in a practical guide which is currently being drawn up. A new milestone will be made by the 2nd of June to resume how to start again indoor sports and disciplines that require contacts.

Naturally, the reopening of sports sites must first be the subject of a discussion with all the actors concerned, in particularly the town hall and the associations. Sanitary measures will be imposed on all users of municipal sports equipment.

Depending on the associations and the availability of the instructors, the reopening of municipal sites is being studied from the 11th of May. A detailed protocol ensuring the town of taking into account health measures will be imposed on all (barrier gestures, social distancing, masks, gloves, hydro alcoholic gels). Based on the opinion of the High Council for Public Health of the 24th of April, the Government has chosen to retain "universal" criteria of maximum occupancy of spaces open to the public. These criteria are based on the estimate of the number of square meters per person (m² / person), necessary to allow people present simultaneously in the same space to evolve in compliance with the rules of physical distance. It has been set at a minimum of 4m² per person, which should guarantee a minimum distance of 1 meter around a person (in all directions). The city will also take into account circulation spaces and the size of the rooms (furniture and equipment).

35. Will it be possible to reorganise cultural events, festivals or city celebrations or to go out to visit a museum?

Any event hosting more than 5 000 people is still prohibited. The theaters remain closed. A government decision is expected on the 2nd of June. The major national museums remain closed.

What is coronavirus Covid-19?


Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus that causes illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases.
It is zoonotic, meaning that it was transmitted from animal to human. It is now sure that the disease can be transmitted from human to human.
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, coughing, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.


How to protect yourself from the virus?


The virus does not spread on its own. People who have the virus are the ones who spread it. Therefore, the following measures can help you protect yourself (and others) from the virus:

  • Wash your hands very often;
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve or with a tissue when you cough or sneeze;
  • Use single-use tissues, and then throw them away;
  • Do not shake hands or greet people with kisses on the cheek;
  • Avoid gatherings, reduce travel and contacts.

What should you do if you are feeling ill?


If, while you are in France, you have signs of a respiratory infection (a fever or feverish feeling, a cough), stay at home and call a doctor. If the symptoms get worse, dial 15 or call or send a text to 114 if you have a speech or hearing impairment.

Should you wear a mask?


The French government has requisitioned all stocks and productions of masks in France. They are now exclusively reserved for medical use.
Surgical masks are not recommended unless you are sick. Masks are not the right solution for the general public because they cannot be worn at all times and are not necessary unless you are in direct and prolonged contact with a sick person.

A toll-free hotline service (French only) can answer your questions about the Coronavirus COVID-19 non-stop, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: 0 800 130 000. The toll-free hotline service cannot give medical advice. If you have signs of a respiratory infection within 14 days of your return from an area where the coronavirus is spreading, dial 15, or send a text to 114 if you have a speech or hearing impairment.

Volunteering with the Civic Reserve (Réserve Civique)

Whether you are volunteer at heart or a beginner, it is possible to register on the Civic Reserve’s platform. This digital tool, open to everyone, allows you to register for volunteer missions (see below) or to accompany people from distance. These associations are usually dedicated to help people over 70 who are now confined as priority. The associations therefore need your help via the platform, to offer essential support.

 

The four vital areas proposed:

  • Food and emergency aid: distribution of basic necessities and meals
  • Exceptional childcare: for people essential workers or in a Child Welfare
  • Link with fragile and/or isolated people: maintain the contact by phone, online, email… with elderly, disabled or sick people
  • Local solidarity: basic necessities shopping for your vulnerable neighbours

 

How to participate?

  • If you are an association or a public structure, submit your requests online so that volunteers can register afterwards.
  • If you wish to become a volunteer with the Civic reserve, register on their digital platform 

 

What are the rules to follow?

 

To protect the health and safety of volunteers and also those in need, it is important to respect the following rules:

  • Always keep a safety distance (at least one meter between people)
  • Apply barrier gestures to protect yourself and others
  • Explain the safety gestures and instructions to those around you and to other volunteers
  • Don’t take a risk if you have a doubt of being infected
  • Engage only in non-physical support if you are over 70, and/or you suffer from a chronic illness

Ø You can find all the tasks and information on the Civic Reserve webpage: la Réserve Civique
