I did tell the police and CPS what daycare it is though so who knows if they'll call on Tuesday.
Well, you don't have to tell anyone. I've made most of the CPS calls I've made in secret. That was usually to avoid the parents finding out who had called (a big, angry dad threatened me one time), but I've worked for a few directors who were more concerned with business than with children. Sometimes they don't want to sound the alarm, even when it's obvious what's needed. You're a mandated reporter, though (of course, your director is, too; she could be prosecuted for not reporting an obvious case of medical neglect), and it would be illegal for you to be fired for reporting. Not that your boss couldn't find some other way to show you the door if she felt like it, but a director with integrity wouldn't do that.
Has your director considered that your license could be at risk over this? Active staph infection in a center is definitely not OK, and might even be reportable. Obviously that's not your issue as a teacher, but as a director I'd be all over this situation. FTR, I'm all for keeping kids in daycare as many hours as possible when I know that things at home aren't very good, but this could be putting the rest of the kids and staff at risk.
