Health, Immunizations, Illness and Medication
Your child must be in good health to attend school. We cannot keep your child with a rash, fever, or illness of any kind. If your child becomes ill or has an accident at school, you will be contacted and he/she must be picked up within one hour. In the event of illness, a child may not return to school until symptom free for 24 hours without medication. Exceptions will be made only for those children who have been on antibiotics for 48 hours, are fever free and have a note from their doctor stating that they are no longer contagious. The director has the discretion regarding illness and re-admittance to the school.
In case of extreme emergency, if the family cannot be reached, a doctor will be contacted and the child will be taken to the ER for treatment. The school cannot assume financial responsibility for emergency services rendered, including, but not limited to fees for ambulance, hospital or doctor.
Teachers are not allowed to give medication. All medicines must be signed in at the office. This includes prescriptions and non-prescription medication. Creams, ointments and even sunscreen also must be signed in. If your child needs a rescue inhaler or epi pen, they too need to be signed in at the office.
All required immunizations must be up to date.
HCCC is required by the state of Oklahoma to report to the Department of Human Services any child showing signs of abuse or neglect.
