Recently, I attended a Webinar sponsored by California's Child Care Licensing Program and Department of Public Health. I was informed that all teachers and parents must wear masks while inside the buildings at this time. The children must be encouraged to wear them also while indoors. We were told that they are hoping to change the mandates as COVID numbers decrease.

Remember to make sure your child has a clean and clearly labeled face mask each day.
