ABSENCE POLICY
Parents (guardians) are required to notify Creek when a child will be absent.  If you have not notified the Center within 2 hours of the regular drop-off time, a staff member will call you at the designated notification number.

ILL CHILD POLICY
Children who are ill are not allowed to be in attendance.  Any child who shows symptoms of illness while at Creek will have their parent (guardian) called.  Arrangements must be made for the child to be removed from the Center within 1 hour.

Guidelines for exclusion from the Center are vomiting, diarrhea, any communicable disease (such as pink eye, strep throat, chicken pox) fever over 100 degrees, or the inability of the child to participate in daily activities.

Children may return to the Center when they are symptom-free or have been on medication for 24 hours.

MEDICATION
State law requires that no medication be administered to a child by the Center staff unless the following requirements are met:

Non-prescription drugs

Written information from the parent/guardian must provide:
1.    Name of the drug.
2.    Exact dosage to be administered.
3.    Clear directions for administration (times, with/without food, etc.)
4.    Medication must be in original container labeled with the child’s name.

Prescription drugs

Requires a prescription or note from the physician stating:
1.    Name of the drug.
2.    Exact dosage to be administered.
3.    Clear instructions for administration from the physician per the pharmacist.
4.    Medication must be in the original container with the child’s name.

HEALTH POLICY

We want to keep the environment healthy for the children and staff at Creek.  We do this by following these precautions:

1.    Hand-washing before and after meals and snacks, and whenever dirty.
2.    Preventing the transmission of airborne germs through the use of tissues for wiping noses or coughing, and washing hands afterwards.
3.    Hand-washing after handling pets.
4.    Sanitizing toys on a regular basis (immediate removal if they have been mouthed).
5.    Sanitizing classroom surfaces when they become dirty.
6.    Staff will follow universal precautions as defined by OSHA when exposed to blood or any bodily fluid.

REPORTING CHILD ABUSE
All staff members have received training in child abuse and neglect laws, and in the identification of children who have been abused or neglected.  Any member of the staff who knows of or has reasonable cause to suspect that a child has been abused or neglected shall immediately contact the Dane County Child Protective Services or the local law enforcement agency.
