Tis' The Season!

We want to make everyone aware of all the things we are doing to limit the spread of the flu and other illnesses this winter season.

We sanitize each and every toy and piece of equipment in each classroom and the common areas. We recommend that staff get vaccinated. We encourage staff to stay home if they are sick. We watch children and send them home if they are showing any signs of illness. We isolate the sick child(ren) from the other children in the school until the parents arrive to take them home. We follow good health practices by continually washing hands of both staff and children.

Here is what we need your help with: If you child is showing signs of illness, PLEASE keep them home. Please keep your child home until they are symptom free for at least 24 hours. Please contact the school if your child is diagnosed with any illness so we can inform other parents. Wash your hands as well as your child's hands upon arrival to the school.

We hope that if we all work together we can keep the illnesses to a minimum. Thank you for all your help in this matter.
