Coachella Valley Arts Institute is a “well-child facility”. At no time do we provide sick classes. The following illness policies will be strictly enforced, for the health, well being, and safety of all concerned.
Sick Child Policy: Under no circumstances may a parent bring a sick child to class, if the child shows any signs of illness, or is unable to participate in the normal routine and regular daycare program. Sick children will expose all children and staff members who they meet. These people can, in turn, expose the other children. Sick children want care from their parents in the comfort of their own homes. If other children become ill due to exposure to your sick child, either because he/she was returned to class before full recovery or because he/she was not picked up promptly upon notice of becoming ill, other parents will be unnecessarily inconvenienced. This is disruptive to other children and their families, your cooperation on this issue is extremely important.
Symptoms requiring removal of the child from class:
Fever: Fever is defined as having a temperature of 100°F or higher taken under the arm, 101°F took orally, or 102°F took rectally. For children 4 months or younger, the lower rectal temperature of 101°F is considered a fever threshold; (a child needs to be fever free for a minimum of 24 hours before returning to class, that means the child is fever free without the aid of Tylenol®, or any other fever-reducing substance.) Fever AND sore throat, rash, vomiting, diarrhea, earache, irritability, or confusion. Diarrhea: runny, watery, bloody stools, or 2 or more loose stools within last 4 hours. Vomiting: 2 or more times in a 24-hour period. Note: please do not bring your child if they have vomited in the night. Breathing trouble, sore throat, swollen glands, loss of voice, hacking or continuous coughing. A runny nose (other than clear), draining eyes or ears. Frequent scratching of body or scalp, lice, rash, or any other spots that resemble childhood diseases, including ringworm. A child is irritable, continuously crying, or requires more attention than we can provide without hurting the health, safety or well-being of the other children in our care. Just a note: Many times, our child care may get blamed for the illness of a child, meaning that we have “allowed” sick children to come here. Parents may not stop to think that when sick children are brought to our center, our entire staff is also at risk of exposure.
