Sickness Policy

SICKNESS POLICY

If a parent is called and is requested to take the child home due to illness, we ask that the child be picked up within 2 hours of the call being made, failing to do so will result in the emergency contact for the child being called.

Your child has a fever when the temperature is 38°C or more. Our duty is to inform you when this happens and we expect you will take him or her home until the fever subsides for a period of 24h without medication.

It is important to contact your physician if your child:

  • is excessively cranky, fussy or irritable;
  • is excessively sleepy, lethargic or unresponsive;
  • is persistently wheezing or coughing;
  • has a fever higher that 39°C.

Diarrhea occurs if a child’s bowel movements increase in number and change to an unformed or watery consistency. We will notify you if your child has one or more episodes of diarrhea, or diarrhea with fever, vomiting, or blood in the bowel movement. Your child can return when the bowel movements are back to normal for a period of 24h, and accompanied by a doctor’s note if treated by a doctor.

It is the wish of the School that if your child has a flu or serious cold that you do not permit your child to attend the School until the flu or cold is gone. This is also for the sake of the other children in the School.

Your child can return after the contagious period has passed, accompanied by a signed doctor’s note.

Your child will be sent home and can return after vomiting has stopped.

Your child can return after the contagious period has passed, accompanied by a signed doctor’s note.

Your child can return after the contagious period has passed, accompanied by a signed doctor’s note.

Your child can return after the lice have gone.

Your child can return when fully recovered and if required, accompanied by a signed doctor’s note if treated by a doctor.

No medication will be administered unless accompanied by a signed doctor’s note and parent’s authorization using the Medication Authorization and Administration Form. Any medication to reduce fever is not allowed at school. 

The staff at Dadi-Prestige International Academy will take all appropriate measures to ensure the health and safety of the sick child and to NOT compromise the health and safety of other children as well as staff. Therefore when you do receive a call about your sick child, it is expected that you will take the appropriate action immediately.
