AKA – When Should I NOT bring my child to taekwondo classes?
While we love having your child in our classes, there are times when it’s prudent for them to not attend. Here are our guidelines as to when your child should not come to class.
Please do NOT bring your child to class if:
They did not attend school due to illness.
If your child couldn’t attend school, they should also stay home from TKD classes that day as well.
We appreciate that no one wants to miss a day of training. Kids who are exhausted, though, won’t be able to get the most out of their class that day. Let them come to another class in the week instead, or add in another day the next week.
They have a non-stop runny nose, or they have thick, yellow/green mucus coming from their nose.
Kids who have a non-stop clear runny nose tend to use their hands and arms to wipe the snot, or, even worse, have “360-degree snot rockets” when they spar. (As they jump and/or spin the snot flies. Everywhere.)
Students who have a runny nose where the mucus is thick, yellow/green likely have an infection and need to stay at home in order to not spread germs.
We’re talking about the student who just can’t stop coughing, even when it’s allergy-related. It’s difficult to engage in physical activity when its hard to breathe well due to constant coughing.
If your child has had a fever within the past 24 hours, they’ll need to stay at home to rest up and be better prepared for a future class.
Any illness, skin condition, etc. – basically, if your child has something that can spread to others, please keep them home until they are no longer contagious.
