For the protection of your child and the other children, parents are requested not to bring a child who appears to be ill. Upon the recommendation of the Committee on Control of Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a child should not be taken from home when any of the following exists:
- Fever-currently or within previous 24 hours
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- Any symptom of a childhood disease such as scarlet fever, German measles, mumps, chicken pox, or whooping cough
- Common cold – from onset through one week
- Sore throat
- Any unexplained rash
- Any skin infection – boils, ringworm, impetigo
- Pink eye or other eye infection.
If a child develops a fever or other symptoms of illness, he will be isolated and the parents contacted to take the child home. Preschool teachers and staff are not able to administer medication.
Should your child develop an infectious disease following a session in the preschool area, please contact the preschool office immediately.
Parents should make note of any allergies on security slip, which is left with the child’s teacher.
All toys used by our young preschoolers are washed and sanitized before and during each teaching session.
