ILLNESS EXCLUSION POLICY
Tree Hill Learning Center staff appreciates the fact that many family members who enroll their children at the center are working and that it is difficult to have their schedules interrupted. However, your cooperation is needed in curbing the spread of contagious illnesses.
Children who have the following symptoms cannot be admitted to the school until the contagious period has
passed and for at least 24 – 48 hours depending on illness.
WE CANNOT SERVE CHILDREN WITH:
• Temperatures 100 degrees or above
• Severe cough
• Sore throat
• Watery eyes
• Green/yellow discharge from nose or eyes
• Swollen glands
• Evidence of head lice or other parasites
• A skin rash that has not been identified by a physician
• Conjunctivitis (Pink eye)
Staff members conduct daily health checks of children when they arrive at the facility. If a child is found to be ill or becomes sick while at school, the parent/legal guardian will be notified. The parent/legal guardian will be expected to pick the child up within an hour.
Medication may be administered to a child only with a signed Medication Authorization Form from the parent. We may only administer medication when the dose, duration and method of administration is clearly specified on the manufacturer's label for the age or weight of the child; as specified on prescription labels; or as authorized in writing by a physician. All medication must be in its original container and properly labeled with the child's full name, date prescription was filled or medication's expiration date and legible instructions for administration.
