We anticipate and look forward to a healthy year. You can assist us with this by keeping your child at home if they show any of the following symptoms: fever, nausea, unknown skin rash, sore throat, excessively runny nose or discolored discharge when blowing, diarrhea, discharging/oozing-eyes, ears, open sores, or a constant cough.
You will receive from the office a letter informing you of any break-outs or illnesses that occur in your child's classroom while school is in session.
Please follow the guidelines below:
• Students with a fever of 100 degrees or higher will not remain in the classroom. The parent will be contacted to come and pick up their child immediately.
• Any student with vomiting, diarrhea, or open/oozing sores will not remain in the classroom. The parent will be contacted to come and pick up their child immediately. Students should be symptom free for 24 hours (without the aid of medication) before returning to school.
• Any child sent home with fever or vomiting should not return to school until they are free from all symptoms for 24 hours. This means symptom free without the aid of medication for 24 hours. If they are only free of fever with the use of medication do not send them in. They must be symptom free, without medication, for 24 hours.
• If your child develops a fever or begins vomiting during the night, do not send them to school until they are symptom free for 24 hours. (see above)
• All medications, either prescription or over-the-counter, must be given to your child before or after school hours. Medication will not be administered by faculty or staff of My First School.
• All known allergies should be given to your child's teacher. A list will be posted inside each classroom for easy referral.
* Do not send your child to school if they are not well enough to play outside. Weather permitting, we will be going outside each day.
