KEEPING UP WITH COVID-19
Tumbelina Nursery School programs is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and has been in communication with the CDC through the County Health Department. Our teachers are being hyper vigilant about cleaning and disinfecting the classrooms. Teachers will be calling parents if children’s behavior is unusual for example they are not feeling well, not eating, sleeping too much or have a temperature over 99 degrees. We encourage families to keep their children home if they are feeling sick. Children that have a fever are allowed to return to the center after 24 hours fever-free without use of fever reducing medications. For FREE Covid-19 tests sign up here https://www.covid.gov/tests
