It was recommended not to use the hot water in the school bathroom off of the gym until the temperature issue is resolved.
The inspector conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection from 10:50 am until 12:30 p.m. There were eight children in care with two staff supervising at all times. Many children were absent due to illness and taking a long weekend for Easter. Children were observed in circle time, washing hands and going to lunch, eating lunch, and playing outside. Positive interactions were observed between staff and children. Three children's records were reviewed. No medications are being administered at this time. The violation is identified on the violation notice. Please contact your inspector at 276-698-9981 with any questions. Thank you.
