Children and Illness at Theophilus

Dear Amazing Theophilus Parents,

The cold and flu season is upon us and that can bring concern for families of all ages. This year we have the added concern of recent measles cases in Vancouver and now Portland. With all of this in mind, we are going to be extremely cautious and proactive to protect all of our children, especially the babies and children with compromised immune systems. Which means, during this season, we’re going to stick closely to our illness policy. If your child is showing any of the listed symptoms below we would ask that you please keep them home or with you in service. We will also be taking extra care to sanitize the children’s areas before children’s service. Thank you for your help with this.

If you have questions or concerns please call or email Asena ( – 503-705-5971)

Illness Policy
