Illness/Injury During School Hours
When a child becomes seriously ill or is injured during school hours, the nurse will notify a parent/guardian. The parent/guardian will be required to pick-up the child or make arrangements for pick-up. In emergency situations, it is essential for all phone numbers and contact information to be current and accurate. Parents and guardians shall be required to provide an updated list of emergency contact numbers each quarter during the school year. It remains the parents’ responsibility to provide the school with any change of home, work or cell phone numbers as they are changed. Please remember that the updated information you provide is the only means by which we can contact you during any emergency. If you have a change in phone numbers or contact information, please notify the school immediately to update the records.
Physical Examination/Immunization Requirements
Physical examinations are required for all children prior to school registration. Since the family physician best know the child, it is requested that he/she perform the examinations.
To be admitted to school, all students must show evidence of immunization against poliomyelitis, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, measles (rubeola), and rubella (German measles). Exceptions may be made on the basis of religious conviction or medical contraindication by completing the required forms available in the school office. Additional immunizations requirements may be necessary as per state code and law.
Illness & Attendance
Good school attendance is necessary for success in school. Academic progress and attitude toward school and schoolwork is directly related to attendance. Children who are ill, however, do not profit from coming to school and may infect others. Students exceeding 3consequtive day’s absence in during a monthly period will be considered excessively absent and may be subject to being released from the vpk program.
The following shall be exceptions, not included in the 3 day maximum number of absences per month:
Following an illness of five (5) or more consecutive days, the student will present a note from a doctor, clinic, Board of Health, or hospital explaining the reason for the absence.
Where a student suffers with a chronic illness, documentation of said illness must be included in the student’s medical file.
