Medical Forms:

Your child’s health is a matter of major importance to us.

No child will be permitted to begin school without a completed, current (dated after July 1, 2016) -Health medical record signed by a physician.

If you do not wish to vaccinate your child, just write us a letter to that effect, signed by yourself.

In addition, no child will be permitted to start school without a signed consent form allowing the director to make any decisions pertaining to the emergency care of your child in your absence.

Illness at School:

If symptoms of illness appear during the day, your child will be immediately isolated from his or her classmates and you will be contacted to pick up your child.

“What are the steps we are taking related to the H1N1 (Swine Flu) virus? The CDC is reporting that in the next two years 30% of American school children will have a case of the virus. However, most cases will be mild. Our school is working on steps that will limit the spread of the flu. Our staff is discussing the ABCs of H1N1 which include: A. Avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes with your hands. B. Be sure to wash hands very often. C. Cover your coughs and sneezes with your arm or a tissue. D. Don’t go to school if you’re ill. Parents, the best defense against illness is hand washing. Please wash your child’s hands upon entering home or school. We will increase hand washing this year and as a supplementary precaution use our new hand sanitizers. We are also constantly reading the CDC updates and the DHEC updates.” It is already mandatory for staff and students to wash their hands upon entering the building, we implemented this in response to some research that reported drastic reduction in sick related absences.

Illness at Home:

We count on you to recognize the symptoms of ill health. Please, do not bring your child to school if there is any indication of the following: fever, colds, vomiting, any unusual discharge from the eyes or nose, skin rashes or open sores, fatigue or illness. Please note: Your child must be free of fever for at least 24 hours before returning to school. Children returning to school before 24 hours following a fever run the risk of infecting other children. Please have your child return to school with a letter from your physician stating that he/she can return.

Medication:

No one at school is allowed to administer medication to children.

Head Lice:

Please have your child’s hair checked. All children will have their hair checked for lice or nits on a monthly basis.  Any child that is found with lice or nits in his or her hair will not be permitted to attend school until they are lice/nit free.

Communicable Diseases:

Please notify us immediately (within 24 hours) if your child or any member of your immediate family

is diagnosed with a communicable or contagious illness, such as conjunctivitis, pinworms, chicken pox, food poisoning, flu and hepatitis.

We will then contact the other parents so that they may take any necessary precautions.

A child that was sick can return to school with a doctor’s note stating the reason for the absence and ability to continue in school.

 

Medical Emergency:

In case of a medical emergency, Chas Veshalom, we will immediately attempt to contact you after calling Hatzolah.

If we cannot reach you, we will call your child’s physician. 

Minor Injury:

If your child receives a minor injury or bruise at school, appropriate first aid will be administered. You will be notified as soon as possible.

Emergency Numbers:

VERY IMPORTANT!! Please keep us up to date on phone numbers, cell, work numbers and emergency contacts.

Liability Insurance:

The school maintains a liability insurance policy, which may be examined upon request at the school office.

Hot Weather:

Mosquito bites should be monitored. Please have your child sprayed with off if necessary. You may send to school a bottle and the teacher can apply.
