The Wonder Center Sick Child Policy 2012
Prior to the first day of attendance, the parent/legal guardian must return a signed copy of this policy agreement as acknowledgement and as a statement of compliance to our policy. This form is distributed during the Orientation Days on the 18th and 19th of August, 2012.
Prior to the first day of attendance, the student must show an updated immunization record as developed by the Center for Disease Control. Parents who waive the right to immunization will not be accepted into the center. We respect your beliefs, but we also respect the health and well being of our other students.
The Wonder Center does not accept children with peanut/and or other nut allergies. Under special circumstances, we may enroll children with dairy allergies. If the nut allergy is specific to an uncommon nut; then we may consider enrollment.
After the first day of school, we adopt the following sick policy guidelines:
• Under no circumstances should students with a temperature of 99 degrees or higher be sent to attend school. Furthermore, if the child’s temperature rises above 99 degrees during the school day, a parent/legal guardian will be contacted to arrange for the child’s immediate pick up. If the fever is above 99 degrees, we can administer Children’s Tylenol or Children’s Motrin if the parent has signed the Administration of Medications Permission Form. If the child is at school with a fever, they will be isolated in the care of a certified teacher until the parent/legal guardian is able to pick them up.
• If a child vomits or has diarrhea at school, the child will be isolated in the care of a certified teacher, and the parent/legal guardian will be contacted to arrange for the child’s immediate pick up.
• A child must be fever free for 24 hours before they can return to school
• A child must be free of vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours before they can return to school.
• If a child requires the prescription of antibiotics during the course of a school day, the original prescription with the doctor’s signature must be on file, along with the medication prescribed.
• Every child that travels over the holidays outside of China, must fill in the “External Travel” form available in the pick up box. It is our policy that you declare any travel outside of China in the event of a viral outbreak in that country such as H1N1 or SARS.
• The school reserves the right to shut down the school in the event of a viral outbreak in Shanghai or it’s environs. This is for the protection of all of the children.
