Safety, Health and Nutrition
1. Please follow the traffic signs in the parking lot and drop-off areas.
2. When utilizing our parking area please drive 5 MPH or under for the safety of the students.
3. Always bring your child into the front office. ABC Academy is not responsible for a student left in the driveway or parking lot.
4. Do not leave your car running unattended in the parking lot. Please turn your car engine off.
5. Students are dismissed only to their parents or guardians. Any change from this policy must be cleared through the office by advance written permission, signed by the parent or guardian.
6. Parents must register at the front desk when students are arriving at school and again when picking them up. This gives us a written record of when the child arrived, when he left and with whom.
1. As required by the State of Florida Health Regulations, all parents must provide ABC Academy with a recent copy of their child's physical examination indicating he is in good health and his immunizations are current.
2. ABC Academy is a place for well children. If a student becomes ill while at the school, the parents/guardian will be contacted and requested to pick up their child as soon as possible.
A quiet area is provided for the child to rest apart from his/her group while waiting to be picked up.
3. Dismissed students must be free of symptoms for 24 hours before returning to school.
4. ABC Academy will not allow students to attend school with the following symptoms: fever, vomiting, diarrhea, earache, unusual rash, severe sore throat, elevated oral temperature of 100 Fahrenheit, red eyes with discharge, skin rashes lasting longer than 24 hours, stiff neck or a persistent cough.
5. In order to protect the health and well being of all our students, we must insist the following procedures be carried out: If your child is out of the school we must be notified as to the reason. If he/she is ill, we must know what type of illness and your doctor's advices regarding his/her return.
6. Medications will be given to a student after the medical authorization form has been completed by the parent/guardian. This form must be complete for each day the medication is required. Only prescription medication will be administered to a student. Over the counter medication is prohibited. Medication must be sent to the school in the original container with the child's name on it. Droppers, spoons, etc. should be included with the medication if so required. When arriving to school, place all medications in the designated container in the lunchroom refrigerator. The Principal or School Supervisor will administer medications at noon and that person will initialize the authorization form when completed.
7. In the event of an accident or emergency, every effort will be made to notify the parents immediately. If they cannot be reached, the school will secure the medical attention it deems necessary. In the event of a serious accident, the school will secure immediate medical services at the emergency room of the nearest hospital. A staff member will accompany your child to the emergency room. Upon notification, you will be expected to go immediately to the emergency room to attend to and assume financial responsibility for the hospital care your child received.
