Injury / Accidents

Injury reports are written and given to parents at pick-up time to communicate the specifics of the injury.    If a severe injury occurs, teachers will take measures needed to secure the safety of your child and will contact you immediately. In case of serious injuries requiring medical attention, your child will be transported to the nearest hospital unless otherwise specified by medical personnel. 


Medication given to a child must be authorized with written permission by the physician and the parents.  All medication must remain in the original container indicating the child’s name, type of medication, date of prescribed medication, amounts, and time of dosage, and the medication end date. Teachers that are Medication Administration certified will be administering the medicine. 

Over-the-counter non-prescription medications are not permitted unless prescribed by a physician and the signed request is brought in with the medication.  A medication permission form must be completed and signed by your physician each time a medication is prescribed.  

Medications are kept out of reach of children with the proper documentation and instructions.
