Frequently Asked Questions


Due to the increase in illnesses during this time of year and the difficulty of avoiding their spread in a day care setting, it is important to familiarize yourself with Harbor Athletic Club Kids Club health policy.

Children will NOT be admitted to Kids Club if …

  • They have been kept home from school, preschool, daycare, extracurriculars, or playgroup for any health related reason or injury (includes recovering/lethargy).

  • They have untreated and/or contagious lice, ringworm, or scabies.
  • They have tested positive for COVID-19 (please follow latest CDC guidelines for testing, exposure, and isolation rules).

If your child develops any of these symptoms, he or she must be picked up and removed from Kids Club immediately.

Please understand that while it is not possible to completely eliminate the spread of illness, adherence to these policies will greatly reduce the spread of germs and keep everyone healthier and happier. If your child is sick, they can potentially expose many other children and/or staff which will cause others to miss classes, and/or work. Please be respectful to others by adhering to this policy.

The above policies apply to everyone and will be enforced without exception.
