Frequently Asked Questions
The following policies from the CCK Parent Handbook address the most frequently asked questions. We hope this information proves helpful, but as always, please do not hesitate to contact CCK (704-333-5818 or ) with any additional questions.
FOOD ALLERGIES (“NUT POLICY”)
In an effort to make CCK safe for all of our children, CCK students, parents, and personnel may not bring or consume peanut butter, peanuts, or nuts of any kind on school property, including but not limited to the CCK classrooms, CCK offices, All Saint’s Hall, and the playground. These items may not be brought to school or consumed during school hours or during school-sponsored events.
We want to make sure your children are safe while they are at school and will take all standard precautions in order to provide them a risk free environment. Each child with a food allergy should have an Allergy Action Plan signed and completed by his/her doctor.
Each classroom will have a list of allergies along with a sign in the classroom that lists any allergies in case of substitutes and visitors in the classroom.
We are concerned about the health of every child in our program. To keep all children as healthy as possible, we ask you to keep children at home if there are any signs of the following:
Fever Pain Diarrhea
Vomiting Frequent Coughing Signs of Conjunctivitis
Excessive Nasal Discharge (of any color)
If a child exhibits any of these symptoms at school we will call you to pick up the child in the school office. When called, you (or an alternate emergency person) are expected to pick up your child immediately. This is to protect the health of your child and his/her classmates. When a potentially contagious illness (Pink eye, Fifth’s disease, Hand Foot and Mouth, etc.) occurs, notes will be sent home to parents of children who may have been exposed.
After your child has been ill, it is important to adhere to the following guidelines when determining whether or not your child is ready to return to school.
- Behavior and activity are back to normal
- Fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of medication
- No Vomiting, diarrhea for 24 hours
- Frequent coughing, excessive nasal discharge resolved
Children are invited to celebrate their birthdays at school. If you plan to bring in a treat, please coordinate with your child's teacher ahead of time about scheduling, number of treats, and any known allergies in the classroom.
If a birthday is to be celebrated away from school and the entire class is not invited, please mail the invitations. If the entire class is invited, please feel free to bring the invitations to school. Please be considerate of our children's feelings and comply with the above request.
Only children enrolled and in attendance at CCK may use the playground during school hours. If an adult brings another child to the playground they will be informed of the policy and invited to return after 1:00 p.m. From time to time, with proper notice, Christ Church playground may be closed for maintenance and special events
A child will be sent home immediately upon the discovery of lice or nits. After treatment, the child should be kept home from school for 24 hours after no more lice or nits are evident. Upon returning to school, the child must be walked into the office by a parent or caregiver so that the child’s head can be checked prior to returning to class. If lice or nits are detected during inspection the child will be sent home with the parent or caregiver. Parents or caregivers walking children into school after lice treatment must be prepared to communicate what treatment was used.
