Our health policy requires the exclusion of any child who has an illness that includes a fever and/or communicable condition such as diarrhea, ringworm, impetigo, head lice, pink eye, and scabies. We would greatly appreciate your cooperation concerning these conditions. If your child will not be attending class, please call and inform the program leader.
In case of inclement weather, the following class cancellation policy will be observed: The Parks and Recreation Department will close preschool if the Wahoo Public Schools are closed or if they have a late start due to inclement weather. These announcements are made available on local TV stations.
Discipline/Suspension of Services
Inappropriate student behavior or conduct will result in a 'time out' per child's age. If misbehavior continues to occur on a regular or frequent basis, the student's parents, Mrs. Reeves, and the Recreation Supervisor will meet to discuss an appropriate plan to remedy the behavior issue. If necessary, the student may be suspended or terminated from the program.
