A child may not attend Frontiers with any of the following symptoms: fever, diarrhea, vomiting, undiagnosed rash, inflamed or watery eyes, severe cold, or sore throat.
· If a child becomes sick prior to school dismissal, Frontiers is under no obligation to accept the child into the program on this day.
· If a child becomes ill while at Frontiers, the child will be allowed to rest away from the group. Depending on the severity of symptoms displayed, the parent or emergency pick-up person will be contacted and must pick up the child immediately. Failure to pick up in a timely manner will result in dismissal.
If a child develops a fever of 100.4 or greater, the child must be fever-free, without the aid of medication, for 24 hours before returning to school/Frontiers. This policy is to reduce exposure of all students to contagious illnesses and will be strictly enforced. Failure to comply may result in dismissal from the program.
- Frontiers can only administer medications with a current, completed, and signed Frontiers Medical Authorization Form on file with the site.
- Prescription and over-the-counter medications must be in original container. Prescription containers must include proper labels detailing dosage information. Frontiers cannot accept or administer any medication that requires refrigeration.
- Frontiers may only keep 6 days’ worth of prescription medication on site.
- EpiPens: If your child needs for an EpiPen for any reason, Frontiers MUST have an EpiPen and school action plan on site before the child will be allowed to attend.
- Bronchial Inhalers: If your child needs an inhaler, Frontiers MUST have the school action plan on site before the child will be allowed to attend.
- Please make sure that your child's name is on ALL medication.
In May, Site Coordinators will begin contacting parents to pick up OTC medication. Students must have prescription medications, on site, until the last day of Frontiers. Any medication, whether OTC or prescription, not picked up on or by the last Frontiers day, will be discarded at no expense to Frontiers. Note: Per RCSD Board Policy, the only medications any child is allowed to carry are an EpiPen and asthma inhaler.
- If a minor injury/accident occurs, parents will be informed at pick-up.
- If a serious injury/accident occurs that may require attention by a licensed medical professional, the parent will be contacted immediately so that the child may be picked up and taken for medical treatment. Failure to pick up in a timely manner will result in dismissal.
EMERGENCIES: If an injury/accident occurs that requires immediate medical attention, staff will call 911 then immediately contact the parent. Once licensed medical personnel arrive, they will decide on appropriate action. Parents will be notified if transport is required.
