4. Instructions for administering medication
Please make sure that if your child is attending the summer program, he/she is well enough to participate in all indoor/outdoor activities.
If your child has run a temperature or vomited in the last 24 hours, he/she should not be brought to the Center. Your child must have been on antibiotics for at least 24 hours before he/she can come back from a strep throat or any other infection. A green or yellow discharge from the nose and/or coughing should be treated as contagious and the child needs to recuperate at home. A rash is also cause to keep a child from the Center. A child with a rash should be kept home unless there is a note from the doctor saying the rash is not contagious.
