Health and Safety:
Health Policy: Your child’s health is a matter of importance to all of us. While Lights On in Lander is not equipped to look after sick children, we understand that parents rely on the program to provide care on a regular basis. Lights On in Lander always tries to balance these conflicting needs and asks you to do so also. If a child is not well, please make every effort to keep them at home, as illnesses spread rapidly in spite of everyone’s best efforts.
When Children Become Ill: In the case of mild illness, the child’s parent or guardian will be contacted. The child will be made comfortable, isolated as much as possible from the other children, and closely watched until a parent or guardian arrives to pick him or her up.
