It is important that you do not send your family member to the program if they are sick.  Please have an emergency pick up person available on days you wouldn’t be able to pick up if they suddenly become sick at the program. If someone becomes sick during the day, it will be important for us to have them leave the program as soon as possible to prevent the spread of germs and others becoming ill.
