WELCOME BACK to SCHOOL for the 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR.

It is already October and due to the unpredictable weather we have, one day hot the next not, we have seen quite a bit of illness with our middle school children already.

If your child has a fever or is vomiting, please do not send them to school until they are feeling better without the help of medication. Also, if your child is sick enough to require medication at home please refrain from having them come to school. This helps reduce the infection rate at school.

I am unable to give any student medication at school without the written script from the pediatrician as well as written consent from the parent or guardian. No student is allowed to bring medication to school and carry it with them. All medication is to be kept in the health office with the proper forms filled out.

In compliance with the laws and guidelines of the State of New Jersey, all new entrants into the Lodi Public School District must present documentation of Immunizations and a physical performed in the last 12 months.

Lodi public school shall admit students on a provisional basis if a physician or his or her designee can document that at least one dose of each required age-appropriate vaccine or antigen has been administered and that the pupil is in the process of receiving the remaining immunizations, as per the Lodi Board of education regulation No. 5320.

Immunization requirements for children to attend schools in New Jersey, both public and private, are established by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services (NJDHSS).

ATTENTION 6th GRADE STUDENTS:

The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services has immunization requirements for all children born on or after January 1, 1997 and entering or attending the 6th grade as follows:

Each child needs to receive a Diphtheria, tetanus toxoids and pertussis vaccine (Tdap) and a Meningococcal vaccine

The law states that:

(h) Every child born on or after January 1, 1997 and entering or attending Grade Six, shall have received one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, aceullular pertussis) given no earlier than the 1oth birthday and one dose of a meningococcal containing vaccine (i) Children entering or attending Grade Six on or after September 1, 2008, who received a Td booster dose less than five years prior to entry or attendance shall not be required to receive a Tdap dose until five years have elapsed from the last DTP/DTaP or Td dose.

(j) Children born on or after January 1, 1997, and transferring into a New Jersey school from another state or country after September 1, 2008, shall have received one does of Tdap, provided at least five years have elapsed from the last documented Td dose and one dose of meningococcal vaccine.
