AIR POLLUTION INDEX (API) Children spend a large proportion of their time at City Kids outside. If your child suffers from any respiratory condition, you may wish to consider keeping them at home when the API at general stations is “very high” or “extreme”. Please note our zoning is Central/Western. For current API levels, please visit the Environmental Protection Department website.
HEALTH & HYGIENE To minimise the spread of infectious illnesses amongst children, we ask that all children and adults attending the school pay attention to personal hygiene. The children's temperature is taken at the beginning of class by the teacher each day. Children who have a fever or show any signs of illness should not attend school. Please contact us if your child contracts an infectious illness so we can monitor the situation and take any appropriate action if necessary.
