Sick Child Policy
ANY of the following symptoms constitutes a sick child, please keep them at home and administer lots of TLC.
If any of the following symptoms occur during school a parent will be contacted.
• A fever or has had a fever during the previous 24 hours.
• A cold that is less than four days old
• A constant cough
• If your child has a rash, they must be seen by a doctor who will determine if the rash is contagious or not. When your child returns to school, please bring a note from your doctor stating your child is not contagious.
• Fussy and cranky
• Vomited the night before or the morning of school
• Tired (rest may prevent the development of many illnesses)
• Symptoms of a communicable disease (runny nose, reddened eyes, sore throat, headache, stomach pain, diarrhea, or fever)
Please allow a full recovery time from illness before your child returns to school. This is not only for the health of your child, but also for the health of the other children and teachers that they would come into contact with in the school.
The school should be notified if your child is going to be absent. The school must be informed if you think your child has exposed other classmates to a communicable disease.
Should your child become ill during school hours we expect to be able to contact a parent to pick up your child. If we are unable to reach you using the phone numbers you have given us, your emergency contact will be called.
This policy can be found in your Parent Handbook.
There are many options for your child to attend Christ Church School.
Snack is provided each day.
Physical education, music and computer classes are a part of the morning program. Age appropriate computer software is used in conjunction with our other curriculum.
