Sick Policy

NO child is permitted to be in the classroom if they are ill.  Children must be kept home if they are experiencing any symptoms of illness.  As per guidelines set by Manitoba Early Learning and Child Care (MELCC), do not send your child to school if:

  • They are running a high temperature (above 37.5) in the last 24 hours.

  • They have had diarrhea in the last 24 hours.

  • They have a runny nose, cough or other cold symptoms.

  • They have vomited in the last 24 hours.

  • They have received fever reducing medication; or

  • They are lethargic, complaining of a sore throat, or have difficulty breathing.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, children will not be allowed at school with even mild symptoms of illness.  

If at any time a child should become ill at the Playschool, a parent or emergency contact person will be notified and requested to pick up the child.  The teachers will endeavor to make the child as comfortable as possible until they have been picked up.
