Infection Control Policy

INFECTION CONTROL POLICY

 

Dear Parents,

In response to the increasing number of students falling sick and frequent visiting to the school clinic, it has become necessary to re-inform you of our School Infection Control Policy. This policy is important to prevent the spread of illness, and is comprised of the following regulations.

  1. Please DO NOT send your child to school if they show symptoms of:
  • Fever (≥ 38 degrees)
  • Unexplained skin rash that has not been assessed by a doctor
  • Vomiting (return to school after 24 hours of last episode of vomiting)
  • Diarrhea (return to school after 24 hours of last episode of diarrhea)
  • Heavy nasal discharge/ runny nose
  • Strep throat including Scarlet fever (do not return to school until they no longer have a fever, have been taking antibiotics for at least 24 hours, and have a clearance certificate of recovery from infection).
  • Persistent cough
  • Red, painful or sticky (yellow discharge) eyes (return to school once discharge ceased)
  • Head lice or nits.
  1. If they have infected or sore wound, warts or molluscum contagiosum the affected area must be covered by a well-sealed dressing or plaster – especially during swimming or other specified activities.
  2. If your child is assessed by School Medical team and thought to be ill, or a possible source of infection to others, you will be contacted to pick them up from school ASAP (maximum within 1 hour).
  3. All children with infectious diseases should be kept away from school for all periods of communicability. Your child will be allowed to re-attend school with a medical certificate, stating that the medical condition is no longer infectious (It is a clearance certificate, not the certificate of absence).
  4. Please inform the School if your child has been or is being treated for a medical condition.

One of the best ways to prevent the spread of illness is through frequent hand washing and proper technique.
