REMINDER: If your worker is not feeling well, injured, not rested... They should NOT come to work. When they are better they may then return to work.

REMINDER: The workers should be bringing 2 snacks with them everyday. 1 snack should go in their camelbak for a mid-morning snack. The other snack can stay in their lunch box for at the end of the day on the bus ride home. Also, you will need to bring a lunch everyday.

REMINDER: We are not allowed to hand out any type of medication. Even an ibuprofen for headaches. The worker is allowed to carry that with them in their lunch or camelbak for their use ONLY.

It is important to be prepared for cool and hot weather. Continue to dress in layers. Light colored close works best. We still recommend a long sleeve shirt. A button down collared shirt or long sleeve wicking shirt works best. NO Flannel - NO Thermal - Sweatshirts and Rain Gear comes OFF mid-morning.
