Illness Policy

Thank you for partnering with us to combat illness at the preschool!

 

• Call the preschool office at 292-8812 or send an e-mail to both Lori and Jane (stlukesc@thuntek.net and stlukepreschool1956@gmail.com) any time your child will be absent, even if he/ she is not sick.

 

• Please see the updated (as of August 22nd) Quarantine and Isolation Guidance for All Providers that is attached along with this e-mail, for how to proceed in the event a child (or staff member) has been exposed or has tested positive for COVID.

 

• In order to return to the preschool, following a non-COVID related illness, children (and staff) must be fever free (without medication), diarrhea free, and vomiting free for 24 hours, and exhibit two or less symptoms. Children must also be able to participate in the school day successfully with respect to energy level and engagement.

 

If your child becomes ill while at school, you will be called to pick him/ her up within 30 minutes of receiving the call. Please be sure to keep your contact information updated with us and let us know of any questions you may have.

More detailed information about illness, health, and safety can be found in the Family Handbook starting on page 20.
