Treatment of Illness.
1. A child who has been ill within 24 hours or has an elevated temperature (over 100 degrees) and is contagious needs to remain at home. Symptoms that would necessitate exclusion from preschool include vomiting, diarrhea, undiagnosed rash, pink eye, unusual tiredness and lethargy. If a child becomes ill during preschool hours he or she will be made comfortable while a parent is called to pick up the ill child.
2. In the case of a major medical emergency 911 will be called first then child’s guardian. First Aid and CPR will be applied, as needed. Any minor fall, bump, bruise or accident that happens during the day will be treated with First Aid and parent notified at the end of class. 1 2 Buckle My Shoe preschool will not be liable for any accidents or injury that occur during preschool hours.
