HEALTH REQUIREMENTS

IMMUNIZATIONS AND MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS:

Pupils who enter the district for the first time shall have a medical examination conducted at the medical home of the student by a licensed medical provider and shall receive immunizations in compliance with the current schedule as indicated by New Jersey Sanitary Code Chapter 14. A full report, signed and dated by the medical provider must be submitted to the school within 30 calendar days of registration or the student may risk exclusion. A parent/guardian who, because of bona fide religious convictions, does not wish his/her child to be examined and/or immunized must state so in writing and must be in compliance with the New Jersey Sanitary Code Chapter 14. (BOE policy #5141.3)


STUDENT ILLNESS:

It is imperative that the school be notified by a parent or guardian on any day that your child will be absent by calling the ABSENTEE LINE at (609) 758-3537. Please state your child's name, homeroom teacher, date of absence and reason for absence. All calls should be made prior to 8:00 a.m.

If your child does not feel well in the morning, please keep your child home from school. If your child has had a fever, a standard rule of thumb is that your child should be “fever-free" at least 24 hours before returning to school.

If your child becomes ill at school, you will be contacted by the school nurse or a member of the office staff. If you receive such a call, please come immediately to school to pick up your child.

In the event your child is injured at school, you will be notified by the school nurse regarding the nature of the injury, any treatment that was administered and recommended follow-up procedures.

MEDICATION:

New Jersey State Law prohibits providing or administering any medication, including over-the-counter items (Tylenol, Advil, etc.), to any student without proper documentation. For further information, please contact the school nurse.
