Due to Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease Outbreak we will be closed from Friday November 17, 2017 until Wednesday November 22, 2017
Dear Parents and Families,
Unfortunately we have had an outbreak of Hand, Foot and Mouth disease within the daycare period. To combat the children’s outbreak, we had thought that an emergency half day closure would have been sufficient and staff were diligent in sanitizing the center. We sanitize every Friday and still do the toy to tub routine (anything in the mouth goes in a tub to be cleaned). The incubation period for this disease is 3 – 7 days, there is also more then one strain of the virus as children have gotten it a second time around. Please ensure your child is well before returning to daycare. As parents please do your part in helping with hand washing, washing toys at home and cleaning their bedding. We have included some information for your review.
Thank you for understanding as we work together to try eliminate this virus.
