From the Director

 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.
If a teacher or the Director tests positive, the parents will be notified immediately and the 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.
In the event of a personal quarantine and/or closure due to a national, state, or regional disaster such as a pandemic, tuition will be charged for the first two weeks. Re-evaluation will be made if the closure extends beyond this period.
