We request that your child remain at home if he/she is feeling ill, has an unusual rash or diarrhea, is experiencing pain or tiredness that prohibits them from participating in a normal school day.
If a child has an axillary temperature of 100.5 the parent will be asked to take the child home. If a fever occurs suddenly, the temperature will be rechecked after a 30-minute rest period. If the fever is still present, the parent will be asked to take the child home.
If your child contracts a contagious childhood disease, please let us know so that we may communicate the outbreak to our other families. Please notify the preschool by phone if your child will be absent. Otherwise after 2 consecutive absences, the teacher will contact the family as to the health of their child. If a child becomes ill while at school they will be brought to the office area until the family arrives to take the child home. Presentation ECC is not a sick child care program. Sick children may not return to school until they have been symptom free and on medication for at least 24/48 hours.
If you have a question about whether your child may attend or return to school with regards to sickness it is encouraged to contact Presentation ECC office staff before bringing your child to the center.
