School Policies

Illness

If your child shows any of the following symptoms, you will be notified by the Director or Head Teacher to pick your child up within one hour.  Children may return only if they are symptom-free or if accompanied by a doctor’s note stating that they are able to return to group care.

These symptoms are as follows:

  • Fever of 101 degrees or above
  • Red, irritated, sore throat with trouble swallowing
  • Unusually dark, tea colored urine
  • Heavy green nasal discharge
  • Severe cough
  • Gray or white stools
  • Headache and stiff neck
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Unknown skin rash
  • Eye infection
  • Any contagious illness such as chicken pox, roseola, rubella, measles, etc.
  • Unusual behavior (cranky or less active than normal – crying more than usual
    or general discomfort.)
  • Any child with a fever of 101 degrees or more will NOT be permitted to remain
    in the Center. In order to return to the center, your child needs to be fever free for
    24 hours. Your child may return to the Center the following day.
  • Any prescription or non-prescription medicine (such as Tylenol or any pain
    and fever medication) will NOT be administered unless a written note from a doctor
    is provided specifying the time of administration. The physician’s phone number
    and liability release for emergency treatment must be available as well.
  • In case of an emergency the school will contact 911 and the child will be
    taken to the nearest hospital. Parents will be notified immediately. This will also
    apply to any dental emergency
