We ask that you show teachers and other parents the same concern and Christian courtesy that you want shown to you by not bringing a child who is ill into a preschool room. The recommendations below are form the American Academy of Pediatrics.
A child should not be taken from the home when any of the following exist:
Fever (should be fever-free for at least 24 hours)
Vomiting and/or diarrhea
Any symptom of usual childhood diseases — scarlet fever, measles, mumps, chicken pox, whooping cough
Common cold — from onset through one week
Any unexplained rash
Any skin infection — boils, ringworm, impetigo
Pink eye or other eye infections
In addition: We will not administer any medications. Food activities are regular events in preschool classrooms. Therefore, information regarding your child’s allergies is very important.
