BUILDING BLOCKS SICKNESS AND COVID POLICIES, June 2021
- SUBJECT TO FREQUENT CHANGE -

As a small school with a very small teaching staff, if our teachers become sick, we may be forced to close BB for several days to a week while the teachers wait for negative COVID results.  Please keep this in mind and help us keep ALL illnesses out of our school.

Masks are required for all children at BB.

AFTER TRAVEL OUT OF STATE:
We appreciate families who take precautions and quarantine after travel, especially with unvaccinated children.  Currently, quarantining after travel is not required by the County of Santa Clara.  California guidelines will be changing June 15, and we will update our policies after June 15.

IF YOUR CHILD IS SICK: Your child needs to stay home until ANY & ALL symptoms have been gone for 48 hours. Families should contact their pediatrician and take advantage of free COVID testing to return to school more quickly.

IF ANYONE IN THE HOUSEHOLD IS SICK:  We strongly encourage families to confirm negative COVID status before your child returns to school if anyone in your household has symptoms that could be COVID.  

IF YOUR CHILD OR ANYONE IN THE HOUSEHOLD IS EXPOSED TO COVID: Per county guidance, please keep your child home for 10 days AND do not return to school until a negative COVID test is confirmed.
