Class Announcements
Physical Examinations
A physical examination is required for all new students entering school. It is important for each parent to followup with subsequent examinations at least once during each of the following developmental stages:

* Early Childhood (Preschool- Gr 3)

* Pre-adolescence (Grades 4 - 6)

* Adolescence (Grades 7-12)

This is a good opportunity to discuss with your doctor any concerns you might have about your child's health and learn more abouth the physical and developmental changes that are to be expected for your child's age. In addition, state law prohibits school districts from providing physical exams to students who have a medical home, therefore, physicals must be done by your private physician. Families who have financial hardships or no medical home can contact the school nurse for further assistance.

 The exam is valid if done within 365 days. Forms are available in the main office or on the nurse's web site.

Medication Policy
A school nurse can give medications in school only when your child's doctor has signed a medication dispensing form. All medications are kept in the health office unless otherwise approved by the school nurse.
Screenings
Health Screenings are done according to NJ State Law as follows:

Hearing: Grades k,1,2,3 & 7
Vision: Grades k,2,4,6 & 8
Scoliosis: Grades 4,5 & 7

A scoliosis screening program is provided to all students who are between the ages of 10 and 18. Fourth graders who are 10-years old by September 1, fifth-graders, seventh-graders, new students and students with a history of scoliosis will be screened by the student's private physician, school nurse or district school physician. Parents who prefer not to have their child screened must notify the health office in writing.
Influenza

Students, faculty or staff with influenza-like illness (fever of 100 degrees or higher, along with cough or sore throat) should stay home and not attend school, child care programs, or any out-of-home events other than medical appointments until 24 hours after fever has resolved without the use of fever reducing medications.

*************************************************************************

SICK PEOPLE STAY HOME:
Students, staff or visitors who have a fever of 100 or greater may not attend school or school activities.

A student may re-enter school when fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medicines and when physically well enough to participate in classroom activities.

Students with persistent symptoms or lengthy absence may be required to provide a doctor's note in order to return to school.

REPORTING ILLNESS:
Call your school to report your student's absence.
Tell them what the symptoms are and the date the symptoms began.
Call your personal physician if you or your student are severely ill or have unusual symptoms.

*************************************************************************

PREVENTION THROUGH VACCINATION:
Consider vaccination with influenza vaccines as soon as they are available.
Seasonal Influenza vaccine and Pandemic Influenza vaccine may be available separately this year.
