Hello City Kids School families,
We value your partnership in our community, and we’d like to share with you these excellent resources and pertinent information to keep at your fingertips. We invite you to share this widely with your own friends and family– to ensure the health and well-being of our neighbors.
Remember – it’s flu season! While the risk of coronavirus is low, according to the Washington State Department of Heath, the risk for flu remains very high in our community. The best way to protect yourself and others is by washing your hands, covering your cough, and staying home if you are ill.
While attendance is very important, we know that right now parents may consider keeping children home from school out of an abundance of caution. Here is helpful information to consider when making a decision about sending your child to school:
- If your child is currently showing any signs of illness, please keep them home and follow regular district guidelines for when they should return: https://www.lwsd.org/programs-and-services/health-services/too-sick-for-school.
- If your child is showing signs of illness and has possibly been exposed to a patient with Coronavirus, please keep them home from school and contact your healthcare provider for further instructions and guidance.
- If you choose to keep your child home out of an abundance of caution, please contact the school to excuse the absence.
Our classrooms have been cleaned as part of our regular protocols over the weekend and will continue to maintain the daily cleaning.
It’s important that everyone takes steps to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, especially to protect those who are more vulnerable. Steps you can take to prevent spread of flu and the common cold will also help prevent Coronavirus:
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home while you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
- Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
We appreciate everyone as we work together to keep our learning community safe for both students and adults!
