Child Care Chalkboard

June 1-30

Blast into summer event

Please join us in the Big Field for our kick off to summer event. We will have snow cones, the Puppy Palace, potato sack races, bean bag toss and more. This is a great opportunity to connect with your child's teacher, as well as get to know some of the other parents. Join us from 4pm to 5:30 pm. In the case of inclement weather, we will move to the gym.

ICE CREAM WAGON

Once a week the Youth Center kids will visit the other classrooms for the opportunity to purchase Popsicles and Ice Cream Treats after snack. The treats will cost $.50-$1.50. We will provide Otter Pops for anyone who does not have money. If you would like to bring $5 or $10, we would be happy to keep this in an envelope for your child to use each week. We will let you know when it runs low. Look for the "ICW" (Ice Cream Wagon) in our field trip section to find out what day it will take place each week.

Happy Independence Day!

We will be closed Wednesday, July 4th and 5th for Independence Day.

Field Trips

Summer is the time for field trips. Please read any descriptions to see if there are special items your child needs. We will also list a price for some of the field trips. This price will be added to your bill so that you do not need to bring cash on that day. There are a few Youth Center and Beehive field trips in which your child is allowed to bring cash for concessions. These will be specified in the description.

Office Lock Box

We have placed a new lock box outside the office. This is a secure place to put your payments or other important items for the office.

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 Change

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)
