Per the DHS regulation R9-5-308, documentation of our liability insurance coverage is available for review on the facility premises.
Parents are notified at least 48 hours before a pesticide is applied on a facility’s premises by any of the following including but not limited to: posting the notice on the main door to the facility, posting the notice at the parent table, in-person communication, via e-mail, over the phone, etc.
Maricopa County Department of Public Health’s immunization requirements for children enrolled in childcare programs call for missing doses of vaccines to be administered within 15 days of enrollment. As immunizations are updated, parents must provide the program with a copy of the updated records.
Children may not attend any program if immunizations are not current. Additionally, we require that current copies be provided annually for re-enrollment. For further information about immunization requirements, please contact your physician or the Arizona Immunization Program
Per the DHS regulation R9-5-516, program staff will administer only physician-prescribed medication in its original prescription container. The container must be labeled by the pharmacist and include the name of the child, date, dosage, name of the medication, and method of administration. Old medication containers may not be refilled with new medication.
Consent forms for the administration of medication are available at the program site and need to be completed by the parent/ guardian and remain on file. Per DHS regulations, program staff will return all unused prescription medications when the medication is no longer being administered to the child.
Program staff will dispose of medications after two (2) weeks of the expiration date or after two (2) weeks of a child’s withdrawal from the program. It is the parent’s responsibility to supply the program site with medication for School Closure Camps and Summer Programs. Program staff will not transfer medication from the program site to the School Closure Camp or Summer Program locations.
DHS requires that program staff inform families of potentially infectious illnesses. To assist our compliance with this regulation, please notify the Program Coordinator when a child’s absence is due to a potentially infectious illness. Children who are ill with diarrhea, continuous cough, vomiting, red throat, unexplained rashes, swollen glands, head or stomach aches, have had a fever within the last 24 hours, or who did not attend school that day should not attend a licensed program. If a child becomes ill while under the care of Community Education and Outreach Services staff, the parent/guardian will be promptly notified and asked to pick up the child. The parent/guardian will need to pick up the child within one (1) hour of receiving notice. After one (1) hour, authorized individuals listed on the DHS Emergency Information Card will be contacted to come pick up the child.
In the case of an emergency and/or serious injury, as determined by the program staff, paramedics may be called and the parent/guardian will be notified immediately. The parent/guardian will be responsible for all costs incurred in such emergencies.
Changes to emergency information and revisions of immunization records presented to the school office are not forwarded to Community Education and Outreach Services programs. All records must be updated with the program.
DHS Emergency Information Cards are available on-line at eServices
or in the Customer Service Center. Any changes or revisions to health records need to be made at the program site or at the Customer Service Center. Additionally, we require that a new DHS Emergency Information Card be provided annually for re-enrollment.
Absences (Kids Club)
Please contact Kyrene Kids Club staff at the location your child attends to report any absence. If Kids Club does not know that your school-age child will be absent, Missing Child Procedures
will be conducted. If the implementation of these procedures could have been prevented, then after the third time (i.e., on the 4th occurrence), the family account may be charged a Locator Fee

Field trips are based upon the availability of school buses. Parents will be notified prior to the field trip so that a written permission slip may be signed. In order to attend, children must have a signed permission slip from a parent or legal guardian. Kyrene Kids Club summer programs include field trips and on-site special events. All children attend the field trip. (All staff attend field trips; therefore, supervision is not provided at the site during a scheduled field trip.) Per the Department of Health Services’ regulations (R9-5-518) parent/guardians must provide written permission (i.e., Field Trip Permission Slip) prior to a child’s participation in a field trip.
Buses for the field trips leave promptly at the designated times. Please keep a list of the scheduled field trips for your reference and make certain to prepare your child for special events on the designated dates and times. We request that children wear a Kyrene Kids Club T-shirt (issued the first day of camp) to all scheduled field trips.
Please note that family members may not ride the bus with children and if they choose to attend the field trips, all admission fees associated with the family member must be paid by the family.
