We are vigilantly adhering to all COVID mandates and requirements as set forth by the Early
Childhood Education and Care Department (ECECD), the Department of Health (DOH), and the office of
Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham. Thank you for helping us by:


• Calling the preschool office at 292-8812 or sending 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.
• Watching for communications from the teachers about illnesses and/ or symptoms that are being experienced in a classroom. This will always be done in a manner that demonstrates respect and confidentiality.
• Keeping your child home if he/ she has a fever and providing the preschool office with written clearance from a physician, a negative COVID test, or a 10 day quarantine with 3 consecutive fever free (without medication) days before returning to the preschool.
• Keeping your child home if he/ she exhibits 2 or more of the listed symptoms and providing the preschool office with written clearance from a physician, a negative COVID test, or a 10 day quarantine with 3 consecutive fever free (without medication) days before returning to the preschool.


SYMPTOMS: Fever or chills, diarrhea, repeated shaking with chills, muscle or body aches, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, new loss of taste or smell.

 

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.
