Illness

  • A child who is too ill to go to school may not attend Kids Club.
  • If your child becomes ill while in our care, he/she will be isolated from activities to rest under supervision, while you’re notified.
  • For the care and safety of your child and others, you are responsible for picking up your child within one hour of being contacted or for contacting an emergency person to pick up your child if you cannot do so.
  • If we are unable to reach you, we will call an emergency contact to pick up your child within one hour.
  • You must notify Kids Club of all absences. The school is not responsible to notify Kids Club of student absences. A site phone directory is available at Contact Us. If you pick up your child mid-day from school, you may leave a note in our school office mailbox (school year option only).
  • Your child must stay at home for 24 hours after symptoms are gone.
  • If your child has attended Kids Club while contagious with a communicable disease, please notify your site so that we can post appropriate notices for other families.

Symptoms

Children who are ill cannot attend the program. You will be contacted to pick up your child if they have any of the following symptoms:
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • A temperature registering 100 degrees or higher
  • Symptoms which indicate your child may have a communicable disease

  • Exposure to communicable diseases MUST BE REPORTED to staff immediately. Parents will be notified in the case of infections or communicable diseases at the site according to the policies set by ISD 833. Kids Club reserves the right to exclude children from attending if they are presenting symptoms of head lice.

    Allergies and Chronic Conditions

    Upon registration or at any time that your child should become allergic or develop a chronic medical condition it is critical that you report your child’s needs to the Kids Club Site Supervisor and Inclusion Coordinator. Follow medication procedures for any needed medications - Medication Policy. You must also supply a care plan (allergy, asthma, seizure, etc.) to your Kids Club staff. 

    Immunizations

    The Minnesota School Immunization Law requires that all students are current with certain immunizations before starting school unless there is a medical or conscientious exemption on file. The immunization dates or exemption information must be given to the school health office before the first day of school. If a child does not meet this district requirement, they cannot participate in Kids Club. Children who participate in Kids Club and are not enrolled in a District 833 school must provide written documentation of immunization or conscientious exemption to the program prior to attending Kids Club. Without written documentation of immunization or conscientious exemption, a child cannot participate in the program.

    Liability

    Kids Club is not liable or responsible for any accidents or injuries which may occur in the absence of negligence by the staff. Neither ISD 833 nor Kids Club carries insurance on students.

    Reporting Injuries

    In the event of an injury, an Injury Report will be completed documenting the incident. If your child treated by doctor or dentist as a result of an injury sustained at Kids Club, please notify your Site Supervisor and/ or the Inclusion Coordinator so that Kids Club can follow up as required.

    Emergencies

    In the event that your child requires emergency care, staff will take the following steps:
    1. Administer basic first aid as needed.
    2. Contact parents/guardians. If unavailable, call an emergency contact.
    3. If an emergency vehicle is needed, we will attempt to check with the parent/guardian or emergency contact for instructions for transportation. Kids Club reserves the right to call 911 without approval in severe cases.
    4. If a parent/guardian or emergency contact cannot be reached, and it is an extreme situation, staff reserve the right, with the assistance of the paramedics, to determine if your child will be transported by emergency vehicle to the closest hospital. Parents will be responsible for any expense incurred.
    5. Staff members are not authorized to transport students in their personal vehicles.
