STUDENT ILLNESS before coming to the PROGRAM
This will apply to school-based sites during SUMMER CAMP OR INTERCESSION BREAKS
When there are questions of illness, please use these guidelines:
- Do not bring your child to the program if he/she has a fever over 99 orally, or if the child has had a fever and medication has been given. The child should be given an appropriate time to rest, usually 24 hours. Student temperature will be taken each day before entering the building by office staff. No student will be permitted to stay if he/she has a fever of 99 or higher. If a student gets sick during the day and has a fever, he/she must remain from the program for a minimum of 48 hours.
- Do not bring your child if he/she has a cough, shortness of breath, difficulty in breathing, other respiratory symptoms, chills, muscle pain, sore throat or new loss of smell or taste.
- Do not bring your child if he/she has an uncontrollable runny nose.
- Do not bring your child if he/she has been exposed to COVID-19 unless he/she has been quarantined for 14 days, or has had COVID-19 unless the child has a negative COVID-19 test.
- Do not bring your child if he/she is vomiting.
- Do not bring your child if they have diarrhea. One or two loose stools might be due to a new food, etc., but more than this may mean contagion and is especially dangerous to children who become quickly dehydrated.
- Do not bring your child if the mucous membrane of the eyes is reddened, if the eyes are draining or if there is an unexplainable body rash.
If a student begins to exhibit sickness while at the program, the office will be notified immediately and the student will be removed from the classroom and taken to an identified isolation room. A parent will be contacted to pick up the child and the child may return to the program after providing a cleared medical diagnosis from his/her doctor.
In the event of a Contagious Illness, other than COVID, parents will be notified immediately via email, text contact, and/or paper distribution. We will also notify the Local Health Department. A child, who may be diagnosed with a Contagious Illness may not return to the program without a doctor’s excuse.
