Notice to Parents When Illness Closes Knox County Schools

Notice to Parents When Illness Closes Knox County Schools:

In an effort to continue to decrease and prevent further spread of illness among our school-age staff and kids, The Y’s Child Care programs will honor Knox County Schools’ closure. We will not offer Day Camp for participants in our After School Child Care at our branch locations. School sites are closed per Knox County policy.

In our Y branches, our Child Watch staff will continue to closely monitor children and encourage the use of hand sanitizer and frequent hand-washing. As always, we are frequently cleaning and sanitizing our toys and facilities. Please help us keep all our kids and families healthy by abiding by our illness policies. If your children display any signs of illness, please keep them at home.

Thank you for understanding our efforts to decrease and prevent further spread of illness affecting our community.
