COVID-19 INFORMATION

We are continually updating our processes and protocols in accordance with the most recent Center for Disease Control (CDC), Department of Public Health (DPH), Newtown Health Department, and the State of CT guidance

Precautionary Measures/Illness Policy

The health and well-being of our families and staff are our highest priorities. In the interest of limiting the opportunity for transmission of illness to others, we are taking the following measures:

Should your child have any of the following symptoms, they must remain home and you must notify WLC as stated in our Parent Handbook: fever of 100F or higher, cough, sore throat, muscle aches, difficulty breathing, loss of sense of smell or taste, or rash of unknown origin.

Per pre-existing policy, any student who exhibits symptoms must remain out of school for 24 hours after being fever free without any medications as stated in our Parent Handbook.

 

COVID-19 Case in Classroom

  • The positive child will remain home for 5 days from the date of the positive test or start of symptoms. They may return on day 6 providing they wear a mask through day 10. No additional test is necessary to return. 

  • The class will be notified but will not be closed. Individuals who have had contact with the individual will need to test and remain home if they test positive.

Health and Hygiene Practices

Our regular health and hygiene practices provide some of the best defenses against the spread of most contagious illnesses. In addition to thorough cleaning of classrooms, surfaces, and toys, we teach children: proper hand-washing practices, sneeze or cough into your elbow and avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. We would appreciate it if you would work on this at home also.
