Welcome to the new school year! We hope you had a relaxing, healthy, and exciting summer vacation. With the start of the new school year, we ask that you alert the school nurse of any changes to your child’s health, list emergency contact information, and give permission for the nurse to screen your child during the school year by completing this Health History Update and Permissions form. If you do not wish to have your child’s screening completed, please send me your refusal in writing by September 15 and please forward a copy of your child's annual physical results once performed. Thank you in advance for your assistance in keeping your child’s school health records current.
Most health-related information may be found on this website. Please refer to it throughout the year for health information, registration information, and required medication dispensing forms, including asthma action plans, allergy action plans, seizure action plans, etc.
General Guidelines Regarding Exclusion from School:
Please alert the school nurse if your child is diagnosed with any illnesses or communicable diseases such as COVID-19, flu, strep throat, pink eye, chicken pox, head lice, MRSA, impetigo, ringworm, etc. The school nurse should be advised so the necessary steps can be taken. Please refer to the NJ Guidelines for the Control of Outbreaks in School and Child Care Settings School Exclusion List.
We look forward to working with you to facilitate a healthy atmosphere for learning. Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions.
In Good Health ~ Nurse Calhoun
