The COVID Corner


Holiday Season: If your family decides to travel and/or celebrate in a large setting, we are asking that you quarantine following the event. Thank you for your understanding our request to take special precautions this holiday season. Katie's Kids appreciates your continued partnership with our center.

Updated Mask Policy: DCFS is now mandating masks to be used by all adults and children 2 years and older. We are now required, not just encouraged, to follow this rule. Masks must be worn at all times tolerable except during meal times, nap time, and while playing outside. If you have not done so already, please provide us with a mask for you child aged 2 and up.

Family Pledge: The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are rising in McLean County. Please continue to be mindful of your pledge to KKLC. We can not keep our children safe without you and your dedication to health and safety. You can help by doing the following:
    1. Continue to take precautions to limit your exposure as you move about in the community.
    2. Wash your hands often and wear your mask in group settings.
    3. If your child or someone in your household shows sign of illness, please use a cautious approach when deciding to send your child to school.
    4. If someone in your household shows signs of COVID-19 and needs to be tested, please keep your children at home until the results are known.
Drop Off and Pick Up: Katie's Kids REQUIRES all family members who drop off and pick up children to wear a mask. Please also maintain a 6 foot distance from others as you wait. These procedures are set to keep your family, other families, and our staff safe and healthy.
