Stomach Bugs Are Going Around San Mateo County
Please be mindful of our health policy. Keep children at home if they are exhibiting signs of illness for the first 4 days of a new symptom. This does include diarrhea. San Mateo County has a number of stomach bugs reported and we hope to keep our kids and school healthy! Also a reminder that the best way to stay healthy is to wash our hands. PLEASE wash your hands and your children's upon arrival each time you come to Little Wonders. It is also recommended to wash on your way out, leaving germs here and not in your child's mouth or eyes as they get tired and put fingers in their mouth or rub their eyes. WE appreciate your cooperation.
PLEASE COMMUNICATE TO YOUR TEACHER IF YOUR CHILD GETS SICK WITHIN 24 HOURSOF HAVING BEEN IN CLASS
We do need to know if your child comes down with a contagious illness within 24 hours of having been at LW. As we have mentioned before, we are all very contagious before we exhibit signs of being sick. So often a seemingly healthy child goes home and spikes a fever or develops a rash or diarrhea PLEASE let your teacher know of this so we can notify the class to be on watch. We do not mention names, simply just advise the class, that they may have been exposed. Thank YOU!
