Immunizations & Health Records
Upon enrollment all children are required to have on record a Health Evaluation form and a Colorado Department of Health Certificate of Immunization Registration form. If you have chosen not to immunize your child, the statement of exemption to immunization law must be signed. There will be no exceptions!
As we are concerned with the health of all our children and staff, we ask that children be kept home when they are ill. If an illness occurs at school, we will call and ask a parent to pick the child up. We ask that you come within one hour after you are called.
Signs your child is too sick to attend school:
*Please notify the center if your child has a communicable disease.
By state law, we are only permitted to administer medication prescribed by your physician. All medication sent to school must be in the original container, labeled by the physician or pharmacy stating the name of the child, medication, and dosage. We cannot administer non-prescription medicine. Please do not send it to the school. If you feel your child needs over the counter medicine, you must come to the school and give it to your child yourself. Do not send it in the lunch box. Please notify our staff of any medication that your child is taking.
Please send your child to school with adequate sunscreen. We will administer it when we go outdoors. A hat is also a good idea and may be left at school if you wish. If your child does not have his or her own sunscreen, we will use a paba free formula with an SPF of 30.
If visiting an area with a heightened amount of bugs, the preschool will apply insect repellant that contains 10% or less Deet. Your child’s teacher will apply insect repellant more to clothing than to the skin in order to limit the amount of Deet that is absorbed through the skin. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide insect repellant for children when requested by the preschool.
