Please refer to your parent handbook explaining the school's illness policy. Please do not send your child to school sick. We will be conducting health checks daily and sending students home who have fever, persistent coughs, stomach issues, etc.
Be assured that we are cleaning and keeping the rooms cool.
Also, please teach your children the appropriate ways to cover coughs and sneezes, and best hand washing practices. We are doing the same at school.

We are now entering our last week before the Christmas Holiday. The preschool will close promptly at 12:30pm Friday, December 20th. The second semester will begin on Monday, January 6, 2020.
Just as a reminder, if you need/want to change your child's schedule, please contact Mrs. Mary as soon as possible. Our top priority is to keep your child safe, which means we must always remain in ratio. Any changes to schedules must be approved by the director.
PLEASE ensure your child has extra weather-appropriate clothes at school. This is very important as we do not want to have to interrupt your work day to bring clothes to school.
PLEASE ensure that your child is well before dropping him/her off at school. The staff will be conducting health checks during the Flu season. Please refer to the illness policy guidelines in the parent handbook. If your child exhibits any of the outlined symptoms, please keep him/her at home. We all need to work together to lessen the spread of germs.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach me at 722-6657.
Have a Blessed Christmas Season and we will see you in the New Year!
