From the Director
We are gearing up for the 2021-2022 school year! Our first day will be on Monday, August 30th for the 4’s and JK students and Tuesday, August 31st for the 3’s. As of today August 11th, the Department of Education (DOE)states masks are recommended for children ages 2 and older when indoors. It also states that adults/staff in childcare settings are required to wear face masks, regardless of vaccination status. Please know that the DOE can change policies at anytime and I will communicate changes with you through Brightwheel.
We do have a supply list this year and it is as follows:
Box of tissues
A plastic shoe storage box
Your child will also need a backpack, lunchbox and reusable water bottle.
We will have our Back to School night for parents on August 26th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary and our Meet the teacher for the children August 27th from 10:00-11:00 a.m. in the child’s classroom.
Please take a moment to read our new illness policy. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone very soon.
New CUMCPS illness policy
If a child becomes ill or injured while at school, the parent will be notified. If it is an emergency situation, we will contact those individuals listed on your child’s enrollment form. All staff members are trained in basic first aid and CPR
Parents MUST notify the school director immediately when their child contracts a communicable disease other than a common cold (COVID-19, chicken pox, measles, mumps, head lice, etc.) Please keep your child/ren home until they are symptom free without medication for 72 hours. If your child/ren are suspected of having head lice, you will be notified and we ask that the child get clearance from a doctor or is treated before returning to school.
If anyone in your household is exposed to someone that tested positive or has tested positive for COVID-19, your child must be self quarantined for 14 days before returning to school. Notify the Director immediately.
If your child tests positive for COVID-19, notify the Director immediately, and the entire preschool will be closed for 14 days. During the closure the preschool will be thoroughly cleaned with approved COVID-19 disinfectant. The Director will notify the Virginia Department of Health and follow their guidelines.
