Health, Safety & Well-being


It is the goal of ISPS to provide the safest and most health conscious environment possible for students and staff.

We ask you to keep your child home and inform the school if he or she: 

  1. Has a fresh respiratory illness, i.e. a runny nose, cough or requires frequent medication.
  2. Has a fever or has had a temperature >100F/38 degrees C in the last 24 hours.
  3. Is vomiting or has diarrhea.
  4. Is on the first 24 hours of antibiotics for strep throat or other related streptococcal infection. If symptoms are not markedly improved, he/she should stay home for the first 48 hours of antibiotic therapy.
  5. Has any contagious skin rashes such as impetigo or infected draining wounds.
  6. Has any communicable childhood illness. 
     

A Doctor’s letter of fitness to attend classes should be submitted on return to school.  Report to the nurse before returning to class.

 

Health Protocols & Guidelnes

Parents whose children are on routine daily medication should indicate this in the “Student Health Record for Registration” form, which is part of the Application Package. On enrollment in ISPS, It is important to complete the ISPS Medical Card with all appropriate phone numbers and to update these phone numbers as they change. Please also list a friend or neighbor who knows your child in case we cannot reach you. It is important to list any drug, food or environmental allergies as well as any health problems on the card provided.


 

Child Protection Policy

All schools hold a particular institutional role in society to protect children and to insure that they are afforded a safe and secure environment in which to grow and develop. The abuse and neglect of children is a violation of children’s human rights and an obstacle to their education and development. This Policy will be guided by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago Children’s Act 2012.
