Covid 19 - Health
While some students begin to first show symptoms of being ill at school, there are some students who are coming to the playgroup with significant symptoms of illness that should be at home.
In order to keep everyone has healthy as possible, we need to have children who have symptoms stay at home:
If your child is not feeling well, please keep them home from school / after-school class. Even if COVID has not been confirmed, it’s still a good idea to keep your child home until you have talked with a health care provider or test results are known. Your child may not have COVID, but they could still be sick with a cold, stomach flu (Rotavirus / Norovirus), or other contagious ailment. Other students, as well as the staff could be contaminated, which could force us to cancel classes.
If we are informed at pick up that your child has been sick at school, we won’t pick up your child. It will be necessary for family to pick him / her up from school.
If your child has been vomiting, has a fever or diarrhea, conjunctivitis, continuous cough, within the past 24 hours, we cannot accept your child in our class.
Please do not use fever reducing medications and then send your child to school / after-school class. This should be the practice at all times not just for the current conditions.
If someone in your household has a confirmed case of COVID-19 please consider all household members as close contacts and get tested and quarantine according to current guidelines.
"Mask-wearing is optional on our premises. Anyone who chooses to wear a mask may continue to do so.
The indoor mask mandate is still active for LYFE, EarlyLearn (Infants & Toddlers), 3-K, Pre-K, and 4410 classrooms.
Children two years old and older, and all staff in these classrooms, must continue to wear a face covering indoors.
Since children under the age of five are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine, face coverings remain our strongest defense against COVID-19 for our youngest learners.
In addition, any staff member or student in grades Kindergarten or higher returning on Day 6 following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis or after having COVID-19 symptoms without testing is still required to wear a well-fitting mask at all times on school property through Day 10.
Masks are strongly recommended for any staff member or student who knows they have been exposed to COVID-19 within the previous 10 days."
