Medical Emergencies

Medical Emergencies will be handled on a case-by-case basis. If conditions warrant, the family will be called to pick up the child at school and take the child for appropriate medical attention. In no instance, will staff transport children for medical or dental care. In the event of an extreme emergency, staff will immediately phone 911 for ambulance service to the medical facility indicated in the child’s file on the Identification & Emergency Form. An immediate follow-up call will be made to the family/guardian to instruct them to proceed to the designated medical facility. All 911 calls and emergency services provided to the child will be at the family/guardian expense.

Families must keep center staff apprised of their whereabouts while the child is in care so that they may be quickly contacted in the event of an emergency
