HEALTH & SAFETY
Illness & Communicable Disease
As a general rule, when a student exhibits symptoms such as a temperature reading of over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, sore throat, rash, vomiting, or other symptoms of illness, the student will be excluded from the class/lessons.
The following is a list of regulations adopted for the control of contagious diseases. These regulations are for your protection. Full compliance is mandatory.
1. Chicken Pox: Exclusion from class/lessons until all pox marks are dry and student is free from fever.
2. Whooping Cough: Exclusion from class/lessons for four weeks from onset.
3. Tonsillitis: Exclusion from class/lessons.
4. Respiratory Streptococcal Infections including Scarlet Fever: Exclusion from class/lessons until 24 hours after antibiotic therapy has begun.
5. Mumps: Exclusion from class/lessons until fever is gone.
6. Impetigo Contagiosa: Exclusion from class/lessons until adequate treatment has begun and sores are no longer draining.
7. Scabies: Exclusion from class/lessons and readmission with certificate of recovery from physician.
8. Tinea Circinta (Ring Worm): Exclusion from class/lessons and readmission with certificate of recovery from physician.
9. Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): Exclusion from class/lessons until 24 hours after medical treatment has begun and discharge has ceased.
10. Pediculosis (Lice): Exclusion until treatment with pediculicide shampoo has begun and all nits are removed.
* Please notify the Charisma Centre for the Arts office immediately if you (or your child) contracts one of the diseases described above, or the following: Meningitis, Measles, Hepatitis, Mononucleosis.
As a general rule, students should not return to class/lessons until all symptoms of illness have subsided, since contagious diseases are most communicable during the fever stage. The student should maintain a normal temperature for 24 hours before returning to class/lessons. If one member of a family is ill, the other students may attend class/lessons unless the student is showing symptoms of a communicable disease. Since colds, flu, and other viral infections are common during the school year and are easily transmitted in the classroom, students who show symptoms of any type of an infectious disease should not attend class/lessons.
Emergency Medical Authorizations
All students will be required to have a signed medical release or emergency medical authorization form on file. In case of any emergency, this form will grant permission to Charisma Centre for the Arts to take the injured or ill student to the family’s designated doctor, dentist or hospital (preferred medical staff). In a life-threatening emergency, a student will be transported to the nearest hospital facility, not necessarily the preferred hospital stated on the emergency authorization form.
Generally speaking, if Columbus City Schools are closed, Charisma Centre for the Arts will be closed as well. No radio or TV announcement will be given. In the event that the weather clears up considerably during the day, Charisma Centre for the Arts will conduct classes. If you are uncertain, please call the church office at 614-261-8440 for up to date information. For any Saturday classes, instructors will notify students. NOTE: The first snow day for each class will not be made up. Subsequent snow days will be made up.
DISCIPLINE AND STUDENT CONDUCT
Standards of Conduct
One’s freedom to receive the most from training can only be guaranteed if every student lives within the bounds of regulations. The Administration reserves the right to dismiss a student who, in its judgment, does not conform either to the stated regulations of student conduct or to the expressed principles, policies and programs of Charisma Centre for the Arts.
1. Students should live their lives consistent with Biblical standards at school and away, avoiding any conduct that would bring reproach to the individual’s or school’s testimony.
2. Students are to be punctual in attendance to classes, special programs or appointments. Movement students arriving more than 15 minutes late to class will not be able to participate and will be asked to observe only. The instructor will direct private lesson students.
3. Students are to respect and obey all authority.
4. Rowdiness, rough-housing, destruction, or defacing of property will not be tolerated. Gum chewing is not allowed.
5. Lack of courtesy, sarcasm, insolence, foul language, insults, malicious teasing, and rude remarks are prohibited.
6. Movement students are expected to abide by the dress code. Dancewear should be CLEAN.* Hair must be neatly combed and pulled away from the face. Ballet teachers may require hair to be fixed into a bun. Ballet slippers must have elastics sewn in them. No necklaces, bracelets, or dangle earrings in class.
7. All movement students are expected to wear street clothing and shoes to and from class. Dancewear may be worn underneath.
* Leotards and tights should be hand-washed or machine-washed separately on the gentle cycle after each class in cold water with a mild detergent (like Woolite). They should be hung on a rack to dry.
