When can my child return to the JCC?
When your child has been symptom free for 24 hours, your child may return to school. In the case of a fever, your child must be symptom free without the use of fever reducing medicine. 

 

What do we need to return?
The staff at the JCC will inform you if a doctor’s note is required for your child to return. If a note is required, it must be from your child’s physician or associate doctor as identified on the enrollment application or from a local urgent care/ER facility. Your doctor may fax the information to us at 330-867-7856. Please note that if we have not received the note or a fax BEFORE your child is to return, your child will not be readmitted to the center. 

 

If you have questions whether your child should attend school, please contact the school office at  330-835-0044.

 

THE JCC RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MAKE THE FINAL DECISION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT YOUR CHILD IS WELL ENOUGH TO BE IN ATTENDANCE. OUR DECISION IS BASED ON THE HEALTH AND WELFARE OF ALL THE CHILDREN AT OUR CENTER.
