Wellness Policy

 

2020 Knox Bricks Wellness Policy

Bricks 4 Kidz Knoxville cares about the health and wellness of children and families. For the protection of all children in the program as well as staff, all families participating in activities at Bricks 4 Kidz Knoxville must abide by this wellness policy.

Children are expected to know to cough or sneeze into their elbow or a tissue and to wash their hands afterwards. Children are also expected to know to wash their hands with soap and water for an adequate amount of time after using the restroom.

We will separate any child showing sign of illness or infection from the group and immediately contact a parent/guardian for pickup. We will also separate children who do not demonstrate good hygiene or proper handwashing techniques. In the event your child needs to be picked up, we expect you to do so as soon as possible.

Children must be symptom free without medication for at least 24 hours before returning to Bricks 4 Kidz Knoxville.

 

Children will not be accepted if they exhibit any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever of 100.00 degrees fahrenheit or higher
  • Persistent or productive cough
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Sore Throat
  • Lethargy
  • Constant Runny Nose with Green or Yellow Nasal Discharge

Children will not be accepted if they have a current diagnosis of any contagious condition. Including but not limited to:

  • Conjunctivitis
  • Strep Throat
  • Lice
  • Influenza
  • Stomach Flu
  • Chicken Pox

Children will not be accepted if:

  • Child cannot participate comfortably in activities
  • Child requires more care than staff can provide

 

In the event you need to cancel an activity or enrollment due to illness, credit toward future enrollments will be given if we receive notification before the event begins. If you bring a child with “sick” symptoms and we have to send them home, no credit will be given.

 

It is understood that participation in group activities is voluntary and that any risk associated is assumed by the parent/guardian of participants. Participation in Bricks 4 Kidz Knoxville programs implies acceptance of/agreement with the wellness policy.

 

Staff reserves the right to make the final decision on whether or not we will accept children.
