SICK & EXCLUSION POLICY:
Your child’s health is very important to us. If your child becomes ill while at school, you will be notified immediately and asked to pick up your child within a reasonable amount of time. Your child will be isolated from the other children and cared for until you arrive. We have a registered nurse on duty 15 hours per week and on call for questions the remainder of time we are open. Please review the following exclusion periods for symptoms and illnesses. This policy is prepared by DCYF and Department of Health, not SNCA. Our facilities are governed by these state agencies; therefore, any policies sent to us must be strictly followed and are not flexible. Our main concern is to protect the health of all our students.
We reserve the right to dismiss or not accept a child for the day, if we feel they are not well enough to fully participate in the planned activities. Please feel free to speak to our nurse if you have any concerns. A full list of symptom and illness exclusion policy is available upon enrollment.
Any medication to be administered by the nurse or SNCA staff must be accompanied by a signed medication release form by the parent and a dated, signed note or current prescription label from a doctor. All medications must be in the original prescription bottle including the child’s name, medicine name, dosage, frequency, date and expiration date. We are unable to give your child medication that is not current or belongs to someone else.
The medication must be given directly to your child’s teacher or nurse for proper handling. Please do not leave medication in your child’s bag, coat or lunch box. Upon enrollment, each parent has the option of signing a release for Tylenol or Motrin to be given at the staff’s discretion only, not at scheduled times. We will make every effort to contact the parent before administering the medication.
