Health Policy

The Preschool can only accept well children to prevent the spread of germs and illnesses within the center.

When is your child too sick to attend school?

  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Undiagnosed rash
  • Red eyes and/or drainage
  • Nose with colored discharge that require constant wiping
  • Headache that will not respond to ibuprofen or acetaminophen 
  • Cannot participate in the daily activities of the program

Your child can return to school once symptom free for 24 hours or as determined by your physician.

A child should be kept home if, within the preceding 24 hours, the child has had a fever, sore throat, rash, an unusual cough or diarrhea or has vomited.

Prescription medications will only be administered with doctor’s orders. Over-the-counter medications will not be administered under any circumstance. Medicines will be kept in the office.

If your child is exposed to a communicable disease, the parent should notify the teacher or Director. Parents will, in turn, receive notice of any possible exposure at the Preschool.

If a child is injured at school, a Child Injury Report will be sent home. For more serious injuries, the parent or guardian will be notified IMMEDIATELY. The Preschool will take all necessary steps to see that the child is assured proper medical attention while under the Preschool's care as indicated on the Permission Form.

In case of emergency, we will exercise due diligence in assuring the child receives proper medical care.
