Health & Safety

We care about the health and safety of your child. Giv­ing med­ica­tion is a respon­si­bil­ity that we take seri­ously, and do as a cour­tesy to our par­ents. Please help us by fol­low­ing these guide­lines for ill­nesses and medications.

• Chil­dren with the fol­low­ing symp­toms will be excluded from care and may not return for 24 hours after symp­toms have dis­ap­peared or the ELC office has doc­u­men­ta­tion from the child’s physi­cian that the child is not contagious:

Fever of 100.0 in the last 12 hours

Vomiting/​and or diarrhea

Unex­plained rash

Exces­sive sleepiness

Symp­toms of other ill­nesses such as con­junc­tivi­tis, impetigo, ring­worm, lice etc.

• Evan­gel Learn­ing Cen­ter will not give any fever reduc­ing med­ica­tion. If your child is teething, the teach­ers will be able to give your child teething med­ica­tion such as Oragel.

• Med­ica­tions must be signed in at the office. If you arrive ear­lier than 8:00 a.m., you may sign in med­ica­tion in room 111, 105, or the gym.

• Pre­scrip­tions must be in the orig­i­nal con­tainer labeled with the child’s name. Sam­ples of pre­scrip­tion med­ica­tions may be given if accom­pa­nied by a doctor’s note.

• Over the counter med­ica­tions must be labeled with the child’s name, and be age-​appropriate for your child. If it is not age– appro­pri­ate, we must have a doctor’s note stat­ing the dosage to be given.

• Med­ica­tion will be given at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. only. Please adjust your med­ica­tion sched­ule at home to fit into these times. Med­ica­tion will be given by an office staff . The only excep­tions will be med­ica­tion for hyper­ac­tiv­ity such as ritalin, or breath­ing treat­ments. Please do not leave med­i­cine in your child’s back­pack or cubby.

• We must exclude your child from care if he/​she requires one on one atten­tion by the teacher.

Thank you for your coop­er­a­tion in this matter.
