With the start of the new school year, we would like all of our families to know that Little Oak Preschool will continue to stringently implement our health and safety procedures for all teachers, staff and students. All teachers will continue to promote thorough hand washing and continue observing students for signs of illness. We are also diligent about keeping our classrooms clean and continue to have our nightly janitor clean and sanitize all classrooms, bathrooms and office.
We do ask all parents who think that their child may be ill to keep them at home until symptoms have passed. The CDC has posted on their website a list of ways to protect yourself and your family from illness. Please read below for these recommendations, and click here for additional information and resources.

Also, please know that we will ask that your child be picked up if he/she is not able to fully participate in our program. If your child is picked up from school for any of the above stated reasons, he/she cannot return to school the same day. Children who express discomfort, are not feeling well or fall asleep during school will be more comfortable at home.
Please stop by our office if you have any questions or concerns.
