Absensces and Lateness

Working with groups of children makes you vulnerable to some of the illnesses that sweep through the Center. You can help yourself stay healthy by eating properly, sleeping properly, and washing your hands frequently during the course of the day.

If you do become ill, please use good judgment about whether to come to work. If you must be out due to illness, please call the Center directly to report an absence. All absences, whether regular staff, student classroom aides, or Early Childhood students should be reported to the office as soon as possible. The Center answering machine is on at all times, so messages may be left in the evening.  Please do not e-mail.

All staff members and students are expected to be “on the floor” at the time that they are scheduled to begin to work. Lateness seriously affects the staffing in the room and impacts negatively on the other staff and children.

Early Childhood students will be required to make up any excused absences they miss. Please be sure these arrangements are made with your mentor educator.
