Sick Policy

In an effort to maintain a healthy learning environment for clients and staff, we have put the following guidelines in place. Please keep your child home, and notify SBD no later than 7:30 am the day of the session, if they are experiencing ANY of the following:

  • Fever of 100.4 or greater (children may return after 24 hours fever free without help from medication)
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Upper respiratory illness (e.g., bronchitis or influenza)
  • Diarrhea (defined as loose stools three or more times in one day; children may return when they are diarrhea free for 24 hours or with a doctor’s note stating that they can return sooner)
  • Bloody stools or stools containing mucus (these could be signs of a viral or a bacterial infection)
  • Vomiting (children may return when they have reached 24 hours without vomiting)
  • Undiagnosed rash
  • Chickenpox (children are no longer contagious once all the sores have dried and crusted over)
  • Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease (children may return after 7 days from beginning of symptoms)
  • Scabies (until treated)
  • Impetigo (children are no longer contagious after 24 hours of antibiotics)
  • Bacterial conjunctivitis (pink eye) or yellow discharge from the eye (please keep your child home if a doctor considers contagious)
  • Strep throat
  • Mouth sores
  • Moderate to heavy draining (from ears, mouth, nose, or eyes)
  • Head lice (children may return after thoroughly treated)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, children may be required to stay home from up to 14 days if they or a family member present with any of the COVID-19 symptoms as defined by the CDC:
