Can my child come to school ill?
Children who are ill, with or without a temperature, or who are unable to participate in regular activities may not return until their temperature has been normal for a minimum of 24 hours, and the child is able to participate in regular activities. Infectious illnesses such as the Flu, Pink Eye, Strep Throat, etc or symptoms such as fever over 100°, vomiting, severe coughing or diarrhea will require removal of the child from the program.
If a child becomes ill while he/she is in our care, parents will be notified and asked to come immediately and pick up their child. Until parents arrive, ill children will be separated from the other children. An alternate plan for your child must be established by parents if they are unable to pick up a sick child or if they cannot be reached by telephone during the work day. This plan must be given to the staff who will keep it on file at the center.
The child may return to the center when it has been more than 24 hours since they were symptom free or with a written documentation from a health care professional stating the child is not contagious and can attend the center.
