Spring Clean-up Day

On Saturday, May 4, we will be having a special day to clean up all of the centers and make any needed improvements. We greatly appreciate any and all help offered during this time. Watch for a sign-up sheet to choose an area you would prefer to help in. Or, if you have noticed any special projects that need attention, please talk to JeAnne or Amy in the office.

We will be working 8:30-1:30 and lunch will be provided. You are welcome to bring your children to help clean, but care will not be provided during this time.

Immunization Update

When your child receives new immunizations, please bring those records in to the office. We must keep immunizations up to date on all children. Our records are checked yearly to make sure all children are current. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Cold & Flu Season--Sick Policy

In accordance with what the schools in the area adhere to, we have decided to make some changes to our sick policy. Here is the new policy with the change highlighted:

"Health:


Trinity Lutheran Child Care Center is not licensed to accept sick children. Children who arrive at the center in ill health will be asked to return home. We will do a daily health check upon arrival of each child. This is a casual observation of your child and we look for overall wellness, not for signs to exclude them. If the child is too ill to participate in our daily activities, including outdoor time, then the child is too ill to be at the center. Children who have been sick will not be admitted into the center unless they are completely over their illness and no longer contagious. For the protection of all the children and our staff, your child must be kept at home if signs of illness are showing such as:

a. Temperature of 100 degrees or more with at least one other symptom of illness including but not limited to runny nose, congestion, sore throat, loss of appetite, lethargic, rash, etc.

(must be fever free without medication for 24 hours before returning)

b. Sore or discharging eyes, ears, or throat"

c. Intestinal disturbance, diarrhea or vomiting

(must be free of symptoms for 24 hours before returning)

d. Any signs of head lice/nits

(must be treated with minimum OTC kit before returning - no home remedies)
