WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK
When Your Child is Sick
Please call to notify the school when your child is ill and won’t be attending school.
Illness is defined as:
A cold accompanied by runny nose, coughing, sneezing, etc.
Vomiting and/or diarrhea - keep your child home until he/she is free of both for 24 hrs.
A fever of 100 degrees or more - keep your child home until he/she is fever free (without medication) for 24 hours.
A rash on the upper chest or torso.
Infections requiring antibiotics - keep your child home until he/she has completed antibiotics or 24 hours.
Any condition that may be contagious or would prohibit your child from active participation in class.
* Please inform your child's teacher of any allergies your child has so we can accurately observe symptoms.
** When an illness occurs at preschool, we will call parents first. If the parents are unreachable, we will then call the emergency numbers listed on your Authorization for Emergency Treatment Form. Once contacted, arrangements should be made to pick your child up from school as soon as possible.
Parents must inform the preschool within 24 hours or the next business day after their child or any member of their immediate household has developed any reportable communicable disease as defined by the State Board of Health, except for a life threatening disease, which must be reported immediately. A listing of communicable diseases can be found here.
