Staff are being retrained on or before 10/30/15 on proper monitoring of cubbies and diaper bags to ensure that all items are stored properly. In addition, a parent letter is going home to remind parents not to leave medication or OTC items in the cubbies or bags brought from home.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
