Illnesses

Cold and flu season has begun, and we are starting to see more absences due to illness. We would just like to remind you of a few guidelines we are required to follow to help prevent the transmission of viruses.

If your child has a fever, has vomited, or has diarrhea, they must be symptom free for a minimum of 24 hours before they can return to school. A general guideline is that if your child is unable to participate fully in our program, including outdoor play, then they are not well enough to attend school. If your child is ill and will be absent from school, please call or email to let us know. We are required by Public Health to track all illnesses.

Also with the cold comes inclement weather. Stanley’s Preschool policy is to close the preschool whenever the inner-city buses for either of the Waterloo Regional School Boards (WRDSB, WCDSB) are cancelled. Please listen to 96.7 CHYM FM or 570 News in the morning.  If the buses are cancelled then school will be closed.

Clothing

Families, please label all your children’s clothing, especially outdoor clothing. Children come in from outdoor play, stand in the hallway, strip off everything and leave everything on the floor. While we are working on self-help skills with the children, we are ultimately left to sort out all the hats, mitts, boots, coats, etc. It’s impossible.

If you need labels remember we are using Mable’s Labels as a fundraiser. campaigns.mabelslabels.com.

In January we are going to host a parent night. We will have a guest speaker and we would like to know if you have a topic you would like to hear about in regards to raising children. Just send us an email.
