Children may not be brought to our Preschool if any of the following conditions exist or have existed in the previous 24 hours:
Temperature of 100 degrees or higher (must be fever free without fever reducer for 24 hrs. before returning to school.)
Vomiting or Diarrhea
Open skin lesions
Any symptoms of infectious childhood disease
If a teacher suspects that a child has any symptoms of a communicable disease they may conduct a health check (ex. checking under clothes for a rash, checking hair for lice, checking for breathing difficulties or discharge from the nose or eyes, etc). If a child shows any of these symptoms while at school, they will be isolated from the rest of the class and parents will be called to come get the child. If a child has seen a physician, it is up to that physician as to when the child can safely return to school and a doctor’s note will be required. If your child contracts a communicable disease, please call our office immediately so we can notify other parents.
If a child requires medication (prescription, over the counter, ointment, etc) during school hours the parent must sign and date a Medication Authorization Form giving NSCP permission to administer the medication.
Medication will only be given in the dosage prescribed on the bottle unless authorization is given by a physician.
Medications must be in the original container and labeled with the child's full name and date the medication was brought to NSCP.
All medications will be kept in the NSCP office.
In the event of a life threatening medical emergency, 911 will immediately be called, then the parents will be called. In a non life threatening emergency, every effort will be made to contact parents before emergency medical attention is sought.
VISION AND HEARING SCREENING
Per state requirements: Children four years of age or older (as of September 1) must be screened for possible vision and hearing problems by December 31.
