School Procedures/Policies Regarding Illness, Medications & Immunizations
If your child becomes sick in school…
The school will contact you immediately. It is your responsibility to come to school and pick up your child. If you are unavailable, the person on the blue emergency card will be contacted. Please keep the school office informed of all changes in telephone numbers, addresses, contacts, etc. The school must have up-to-date information in order to reach you in case of illness or an emergency.
To protect your child’s health, do not send him/her with the following conditions…
Fever of 100 F or higher
Infected Skin Patches
“Pink Eye” (Conjunctivitis)
Vomiting or Diarrhea
Unusual Spots or Rashes
If your child has: He/She Must Be Kept out of school:
5 days after appearance of rash
Rubella (German Measles)
Until rash has disappeared
Until all of the swelling of the glands has disappeared
14 days after whoop begins
Until temperature has become normal
Streptococcal Sore Throat
By keeping your child home, you are not only helping him/her to get well faster, you are also preventing the illness from spreading to other members of the class and staff. Let the school know as soon as possible that your child is ill. When you child returns to school, give him/her a note for the teacher/nurse explaining the absence, or provide a note from the treating physician.
During school hours, students may have their medications given to them by the school nurse. However, their Medication Administration Record (Form 504) must be filled out and signed by the doctor and parent. All medication must be in appropriate containers and properly labeled by the pharmacy or physician with the dosage/schedule. A photo of your child must be on the container. Please advise the school nurse of any chronic illnesses and / or food or other allergies that your child has. Please be aware that your child must not bring medication to school. If your child is taking antibiotics, cold or allergy medications, etc., these must be administered at home.
The New York State Department of Education and the Board of Health requires documentation be secured providing that all children who come to school are fully immunized. We are required to exclude children that are not immunized and do not have documentation from a physician indicating the reason.
