ILLNESS POLICY for Spark! Discovery Preschool and St. Vrain Valley Schools:

In English: How Sick is Too Sick?

In Spanish:  ¿Qué tan enfermo es muy enfermo?

Hearing and Vision Screenings:

The school provides annual hearing and vision screenings for 3 and 4 year olds to make sure these are issues not impacting a child’s learning. If you want your child excluded from this screening families must contact your preschool teacher. There are many reasons, to ensure your child's educational success, to make sure they are seeing and hearing. 

Dental Screening:

Our school also partners with the Longmont Sunshine Club to provide a free dental screenings. The Sunshine Club, Longmont’s longest-running philanthropic organization, has hosted dental clinics in St. Vrain Valley Schools for elementary students since the 1950s. This screening is meant for preschoolers without dental insurance or who are on Medicaid, who have not seen a dentist.  To take advantage of this screening, families must opt-in, using the form, which will come in your Thursday/Friday folder.

Health Appraisal Form:

A “Health Appraisal Form” from a doctor stating that your child is healthy enough to attend preschool is due 30 days after the start of school. We do not want obtaining this to prevent a child from attending preschool.  If a family without access to health care is struggling to complete the required Health Appraisal, call the school’s health clerk who can coordinate a nurse practitioner to conduct a general check up, with the parent present, at school in the health office.
