You are the best judge of your child’s health and we trust that you will not bring a sick child to the school. However, if in the opinion of the teaching staff your child is sick, we will separate him or her from the other children and call you to come and pick-up your child.
Please keep schedules, phone numbers and all records up to date with the front desk. You must keep your child home if: they have a fever of 100.3 or have had a fever in the past 24 hours, they have vomited more that once in past 24 hours, or if they have unusual spots or rashes, sore throat, loss of appetite, unusually cranky, less active behavior.
In general, we feel that a child on medication needs to be at home. However, some medication must be given over a specific numbers of days, even though the child has improved. Parents may request under these circumstances that the child be given medication while at the school.
No medications, vitamins, or special diets are administered unless instructions to administer such items are written, signed and dated by a licensed physician and are
prescribed for that child. This applies to over the counter pain relievers as well as prescription medicines. All medications must be in the original, child resistant container, labeled by a pharmacist with your child’s first and last name, date prescription was filled, medication’s name and expiration date, administration, storage and disposal instructions. Pleased do not send medication in your child’s bag or coat pocket, or leave medication in your child's cubby. Do not take medication to the classroom.
There are special forms that must be completed by the parent. These forms are available at the front desk. A KIDS ARE ANGELS staff member will administer medication prescribed by the doctor only at 10 a.m., 2p.m., and 4p.m. you must complete and sign the school MEDICATION SLIP.
