Health Policies

  Please be sure to take your child’s temperature prior to sending them to school. Throughout the day, they will be encouraged to use hand sanitizer. We will go over proper hand washing techniques, as well as other good hygiene techniques. All adults who may interact with your child are vaccinated according to current California Department of Social Services guidelines. Our classroom is equipped with a Guardian Tabletop Air Purifier. The cleaning system has a charcoal filter, HEPA filter, and UV-C light to capture 99% of dust and allergens while killing bacteria and viruses, including: rhinovirus, E. coli and streptococcus. Tabletops and shared materials are disinfected frequently. Class sizes will be kept small.

  If your child has a fever, vomiting, discharge from eye, unexplained rash, or diarrhea, they MUST be kept home. Children may return to school 24 hours after symptoms have subsided without the use of medication (unless covid related). I also advise that eating habits return to normal prior to the child’s return. Clear, runny noses and coughs allergy related are fine. If the mucus is thick or a color of any kind, please keep your child home. Please notify me of any illness.

 

  If a child begins showing signs of illness while at school, the child will be isolated. You will be called to pick up your child. We will follow all CDC/ County Health/ CA Dept. of Social Services recommendations. This includes recommendations to mask or close due to health risks, as required by the Department of Social Services.

 

  Your child must be up to date on all recommended childhood vaccinations, and a copy of your child’s immunization record must be up to date and on file to attend school. This is a requirement of my licensure with the state and is non-negotiable. As of January 1, 2016 (SB 277, Pan, 2015) parents or guardians of students in any school or child-care facility, whether public or private, are no longer allowed to submit a personal beliefs exemption to a currently required vaccine. Under Senate Bills SB 276 and SB 714 (Pan, 2019), beginning January 1, 2021, all new medical exemptions for school and childcare entry must be issued through CAIR-ME. Medical exemptions can only be issued by MDs or DOs licensed in California. For more information on immunizations required, please visit Shots for School (ca.gov).
