To ensure the health and safety of our children and families, we ask that everyone follows our sick policy stated below.
Please keep your child home if he/she has any of the following symptoms:
- Has a fever of 100.0 degrees or higher
- Has been vomiting or has diarrhea
- Undiagnosed skin rash
- Undiagnosed eye discharge, redness or swelling
symptoms that keep him or her from participating in therapy, such as:
- Runny nose (yellow/greenish discharge)
- Very tired or lack of appetite
- Cough that he or she cannot control, sneezing often
- Headache, body aches, or earache
- Sore throat—a severe sore throat could be strep throat, even if there is no fever. Other symptoms of strep throat in children are headache and stomach upset or rash.
- Is unable to comfortably participate in therapeutic activities.
Keep your child home until his or her fever has been gone for 24 hours without medicine. Returning to school/therapy too soon may slow recovery or allow your child to be exposed to other germs while recovering. Sending a child back too soon also exposes other children and staff members to illness.
Keep your child home until 24 hours after last vomiting or diarrhea episode.
We reserve the right to make any final decisions regarding our sick policy.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
