Health & Safety

The children’s health and safety are very important to us at Lakeview Maria Montessori Preschool. Please do not bring your child to school if he/she is ill. The following are general guidelines for keeping your child at home:

  • A fever of 100 degrees or more (your child must be fever free for a 24 hour period).
  • Any discharge from eyes (conjunctivitis or pink eye).
  • Diarrhea within the past 24 hours.
  • A runny nose with thick yellow or green discharge.
  • If your child has vomited within a 24 hour period.
  • If your child has head lice, they may not return to school until all live lice are gone and all nits are removed.


It is very important that you adhere to these guidelines to prevent the spreading of contagious diseases. For the safety of all children, those with symptoms of illness may not attend until they are completely well. Your child may be sent home if he/she appears to have symptoms of illness during the hours he/she is left in our care. In such cases, your child will be immediately isolated from the other children and a parent will be contacted to pick the child up. In the case that a parent cannot be reached we will, at our discretion, notify a contact on your emergency authorization form. Please make sure that anyone whom you list on your emergency form is acceptable to pick up your child in the event that we cannot contact you.

Remember that the other parents need to be notified if a child has a contagious disease. Please notify the school immediately if your child becomes ill so that we may give notice to others.
