Important health and medical information can be found in your child's handbook.


Medication | Illness | Immunizations | Screenings


All medication,  must be accompanied by a doctor's order and to be given to the Nurse.  The order needs to state the name of the drug, the dose and the time to be given.  Written parent permission is also required.  Medication is to be in the original container and brought in to the nurse by parent or guardian and not with student on the bus.

•   If your child becomes ill at school, every attempt will be made to notify you.  Please inform the school of any home, work, or cell phone number changes.
•   If your child develops a fever of 100 or above, while in school, they will need to go home.
•  It is highly recommended that you keep your child home until their temperature returns to normal and remains normal without the aide of medicine for 24 hours. This practice is good for your child's health and the health of their classmates.  Please see kidshealth.org web site below for signs and symptoms of pink eye.


Recent changes in immunization mandates (Chapter 14, N.J.A.C. 8:57-4.1 to 8:57-4.17)  Please contact your physician if you have any questions pertaining to these new vaccines.  Your child will not be able to attend school without the proper scheduled immunizations, it is a state law.  Please contact Mrs. Ewing, RN if you need assistance.  Each child must have one completed physical within the 365 day period prior to the start of Kindergarten 

This is a great web site for immunization and growth and development of a school age child.


Every year your child's height, weight and blood pressure will be measured. Vision and Hearing will also be done. A referral form will be sent home with student if further testing is recommended by the Nurse's Office.

I hope you found the above information helpful.  Please do not hesitate to call me with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child's health or school health needs.
Please see other important information on the Nurse's website.
