No child should attend the child center if he or she has a communicable disease, a fever of 99 degrees of more, a rash of undetermined origin, diarrhea, green discharge from the nose, open sores, persistent cough, or vomits. If your child develops any of these symptoms, he or she should not return to the center for at least 24 hours, symptom free. The Director may require a doctor’s note before a child will be readmitted to the center after an illness.
If your child becomes ill at the center, he or she will be isolated and you or an authorized adult will be notified. In the event of a medical emergency, you will be contacted and the Cornwall Volunteer Ambulance will be called. Your child’s doctor will also be called as stated on the medical form and the consent-for-treatment form you signed at the time of enrollment (may also be found online).
The teachers are authorized to give certain medications to the children when the State guidelines are followed. If your child has a medical condition for which an emergency medication would be necessary, please see the Director so that your child’s physician can fill out the necessary permission forms. All medications will be kept in a lock box.
