Policy Refresher

It's always a good idea to have a refresher on our policies. This month's topic will be our illness policy.

In our parent handbook it states, “children may not attend Children's Academy Preschool if they have any of the following symptoms: temperature of 101ยบ or higher, diarrhea (3 or more in one day), vomiting (1 or more times), refusal to eat, irritable, any undiagnosed rash, sores with discharge, or profuse nasal discharge”.

Continues on, “we ask that your child be symptom free or on antibiotics for at least 24 hours before returning to school”. This means that your child is not allowed to return to school the following day. If you bring in a doctor's note stating your child is not contagious then they are welcome to attend. Also, it is our policy that the parent or another authorized individual pick up the sick child within 1 hour.

We hope you will re-read our policies and procedures. We have these rules to ensure a safe and fun learning environment for your child. As always, please feel free to ask if you have any questions.
