Compass Christian Preschool Families,
As you know, we have had a large number of students out with Influenza A, streptococcus, a stomach virus and a virus that has fever but is not testing positive for either the flu or strep. As of this morning we have over 20% of our students with some kind of illness and we are now hearing from staff members who are sick. I have spoken to a nurse with GCISD and the Tarrant County Health Department and the only way to truly STOP the spread of the viruses is to close for the rest of the week. Please know that this is not an easy decision to make but the health and safety of your family and my staff is my highest priority. Since we will be paying our staff for the rest of the week, we will not be giving tuition adjustments or having any makeup days.
Here is what viruses we are seeing in each age level –
Transitional Kindergarten – Flu A
Four Year Old Classes – Strep and assorted viruses
Three Year Old Classes – Flu A, Strep and assorted viruses
Two Year Old Classes – Flu A, Strep and assorted viruses
One Year Old Classes – None
Your child’s teacher will be contacting you this afternoon or evening to find out how your family is feeling. We will update our illness chart and then I will give all of you an update tomorrow. Please remember to have your family wash their hands and get new tooth brushes.
Director of Compass Christian Preschool
