Sickness Policy

In order to provide a safe, healthy environment for all our children, we ask that you keep your child at home any time he or she exhibits the following symptoms:

  • Sore Throat      
  • Fever within the previous 24 hours
  • Vomiting/diarrhea within the previous 24 hours 
  • Runny nose with any colored discharge   
  • Head lice (child should be free of all nits)
  • Skin infection or any unexplained rash
  • Pink eye and other eye infections
  • Symptoms of childhood diseases such as scarlet fever, measles, mumps, chicken pox,  whooping cough

If your child develops any of the above symptoms while at Westover, you will be notified. Please make every effort to remove your child from the classroom as soon as possible so other children will not become infected. 

Thank you for your cooperation.  We hope your child feels better soon!
