Illness Policy Update
 

With everything that we have faced over the last year, I think it is time for an update to our Illness exclusion policies. While schools can make their own determinations, many times we must rely on state standards to back up and support our center rules and regulations. Currently there is a very limited list which consists of three symptoms or a communicable disease. 

Additionally it should be clarified that "A child shall not be allowed to attend the center for the day if he has: " should read "A child shall not be allowed to attend the center for 24 hours if they have:" 

22VAC40-185-490. Preventing the spread of disease.
