Dear Parent(s) / Guardian(s),
We hope this update finds you well! Here are a couple of reminders for your health and your child(ren)’s health and happiness as well:
As you know there is a virus currently making the rounds. As a reminder, our illness policy in the parent handbook states the following:
Children exhibiting any of the following symptoms will be required to stay home until he/she is symptom-free. Any child who develops these symptoms must be picked up from childcare within one hour:
· A fever of 100.4 or higher
· An unknown rash
· Croup-like cough
· The flu
· Pink Eye
· Diarrhea (2 loose bowel movements in 2 hours)
· Or any other illness that would require staff to excessively attend to a child.
A child who develops any of these symptoms may be removed from his/her room and sent to the Learning Center Office where he/she will remain until picked up.
We require a note from the doctor before re-entry into childcare for any contagious illnesses such as, but not limited to: pink eye, croup, and the flu. A child may return to the center after he/she has been symptom-free for 24 hours.
Children are not to return for 24 hours for the health of the other children and staff. Please be respectful to others and adhere to our policies.
Pick Up Courtesy
Your child(ren) look forward to seeing you each afternoon and the staff usually wish to speak with you about your child(ren)’s day. We ask that you please refrain from cell phone usage when you arrive to pick up your child(ren).
