Health & Safety
The health and safety of your children and our staff is our number one priority while they are with us. Preschool is an important time in a child's health development, exposure to all of those dreaded preschool germs. In order to keep our preschool community as healthy as possible throughout the school year, it's imperative to be extra cautious when evaluating your child's condition if they are feeling poorly. Take a look at our Illness and Safety Toolkits below for any and all information regarding precautions we take throughout our day and precautions you can take at home as a family.
Deciding if you should stay at home and rest...
If your child is uncomfortable, tired or requires 1-on-1 comfort to participate in daily activities, we ask that you keep them home for the day, even if they are fever-free. This is in the best interest of the child as they recuperate, and best for the others in the class who require the full attention of our teachers to have a successful day. If the teacher determines your child is extremely uncomfortable or unable to participate independently, Mrs. Taylor will be in touch to notify you of your child's condition.
If your child has a fever of 100 degrees or more, with or without other symptoms, they must stay home. In order to return to school, they must be fever-free, without use of fever-reducing medication, for 24 hours. If you have any questions or concerns about returning, please contact Mrs. Taylor.
The CDC defines a fever as a person with a "measured temperature of at least 100.4 °F [38 °C].A fever is typically a bodily response to an infectious cause, although not always present when person is infectious."
Keeping our students and families safe during the time they are in our school is our highest priority. Our staff are trained, skilled, and plan for all types of potential scenarios and emergencies. We want to make sure your family is as comfortable as possible with our care of your little ones. You can find our safety guide at the button below.
