“Owies” and “boo-boos” can happen while your child is at school. Here are some things we do to ensure that your child gets excellent care in the event of an accident.
Teachers have their own basic first aid kit to manage cuts and scrapes. We also have a stash of small reusable ice packs for bumps. It’s our policy to send home a written accident report if your child gets hurt at school to keep you informed. We ask that you sign these forms, return, and then we’ll give you a copy to keep. We also keep copies in your child’s file in the school office.
For young children, comfort is an important part of first aid. Hugs and one-on-one time on a teacher’s lap often are the best way to help little ones feel better. Did you know that we have floaters (kind of like assistant teacher) who move between classes to provide extra support in the event of accidents and other situations requiring extra hands?
In the event of a more serious injury, it’s our policy to call parents immediately. You can help us by making sure you are available by phone during school hours. In fact, save our office number to your phone so you can recognize us if we call you: 407-996-5864
