Bridge Kids Health Guidelines

The health of our children and families is a priority here at the Bridge. To better ensure we have a healthy environment, please keep your children home if they are experiencing any of the following:

  • Cough or cold-like symptoms
  • Temperature of 100.9 or greater
  • Diarrhea and/or vomiting
  • Signs of pink eye or conjunctivitis
  • Presence of head lice
  • Diagnoses of strep throat
  • Skin rash that has open sores or fluids

Bridge Kids staff or volunteers may not distribute medication to children. This includes rash creams or antibiotic ointments. If symptoms become evident while the child is in our care, the parent/guardian will be notified immediately so they may take their child home.
