The Montessori School of Lemont recognizes that students, staff and volunteers may suffer from various food allergies. In an effort to make everyone welcome, the school strictly observes a nut-free environment. To read more about nut and other food allergies, please visit KidsHealth.com.
If your child will be taking any medication during school, including epinephrine auto-injectors and asthma inhalers, please complete the School Medication Authorization Form and Parental Authorization for Student Self-Administration of Medication Form and deliver both to the main office. New forms must be completed every school year.
Children with allergies, including asthma, who may take medication during school are required to have a completed FARE Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan form on file along with a School Medication Authorization Form.
Dental, Medical, & Vision
All children in Kindergarten, 2nd, 6th and 9th grades of any state registered public, private or parochial school must have a dental examination, and present proof of having been examined by a dentist.
Before entering school, a completed Illinois Department of Public Health Form is required for all students each year in preschool, and those entering Kindergarten, 1st, 6th and 9th grades. The State of Illinois also requires a TB test unless waived in writing by the physician or for religious reasons.
Students enrolling in Kindergarten and new students in 1st through 9th grade must have a completed vision exam and form on file.
Absences & Illnesses
Routine absences should be reported to your child’s teacher via email or voicemail. Absences due to contagious diseases should be reported to the office in order for the school to alert other parents to take precautions. Extended absences should be sent in writing to your child’s teacher upon return to school.
Students may not be sent to school with fever or contagious diseases and must be fever free for 24 hours, without the help of fever reducing medication, before returning to school. Deciding when a child is too sick to go to school can be a difficult decision to make. If children are too sick to go outside for recess, then they are too sick to go to school.
Ultimately you know your child best, and often their general behavior can be your most effective guide.
