Illness

Assessment and evaluations for students that don't feel well will be done in the Health Office. Based on the nurses' assessment, students may be sent home or allowed to rest in the Health Office. Any student with a suspected communicable disease will be sent home and re-admitted only after evaluation and clearance note provided by their healthcare provider.

Medication at school

Any medication given in school requires the authorization of a physician or guardian. All prescribed medications must be labeled and given to the Health Office along with medical orders for the pediatrician.

**Contact Nurse for medication authorization paperwork**

Immunizations

Students are required to meet the immunization requirements set forth by the NJ Department of Health.

Screenings

Height, weight and blood pressure screenings are done yearly for all students. Hearing, vision and scoliosis screenings are performed on students as required by the NJ school health state guidelines. Any concerns are referred to the parents for further evaluation by the child's healthcare provider.

Physical Education Passes

Parents must notify the school nurse and provide a physician note if a child has any new injury such as: a laceration requiring sutures, using crutches, or has a cast or brace on.

The note should indicate that the student is not permitted to participate in PE/Sports/Recess and should show the length of time before he/she can return to full activity.
