Sick Policy

Sick Policy

  • We all love co-op, but please stay home if you or your child are experiencing any of the following:
    • Fever of 100.4 degrees or higher within the last 24 hours.
      • You may return to co-op if you have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication ie: Tylenol, Motrin, etc.
    • Vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours.
      • Even if there has been no vomiting within the last 24 hours, please do not return to co-op until you are vomit-free for at least 2 solid meals. "Only being able to hold down liquids" does not count as a solid meal.
    • Rash that is itchy or accompanied by a fever or behavior change.
      • You may return when you are free from itching, or fever, or have been evaluated by a medical professional and deemed non-contagious. Mosquito bites do not apply.
    • Head lice, including an itchy head, or active head lice.
      • Please keep the entire family home if you have head lice in your home.
      • You may return when you have been treated with appropriate lice treatment and everyone has been given the all-clear.
    • Eye infection, including redness, itching, and/or crusty drainage from the eye
      • You may come to co-op if you know it is just allergies.
      • You may return to co-op when the infection has passed. If you have seen a doctor, please do not return until they have given you the all-clear.
    • Sinus issues including a stuffy/runny nose, congestion, or frequent nose blowing.
      • We know this is a common allergy issue so defer to your judgement as a parent whether it is "just allergies" or something more. When in doubt, please stay home.
      • If anyone on leadership notices you or your child exhibiting these symptoms we may come to you to clarify whether it is allergies or a potential cold. 
    • Been in the hospital or ER
      • You may come back to co-op once you have been given the all-clear by a medical professional.
  • Even though illnesses often skip members within the same family, we ask that if one member is sick the entire family stay home. 
  • We know that kids can appear healthy one minute and sick the next. If any child in your class becomes ill please notify the hall monitor so she can:
    • Find the parent of the sick child and help collect all siblings and family members so they can go home.
    • Arrange for subs for the rest of the parent's classes.

If you or any of your family members come to co-op and are sick you will be asked to go home for the week.
