Hand, Foot and Mouth?

In the last three weeks three children who regularly attend our preschool Sunday school class and Vacation Bible School have developed HFM (to simply). I have read the wiki page for info, the CDC page isn't loading.

Question is, would you still take your LOs to class and vbs knowing this? Tonight is vbs and my kids love to go but I don't want them picking it up if it's going around church.

Can anyone tell me how contagious it is and when the contagious period is? I have read its spread by contact with saliva, mucous or feces of an infected person. That doesn't seem terribly contagious but then again, it's definitely spreading in our church.

Thanks! I'm on the fence and need some advice.
