School health information
School Health Information

  • Medications - Our best advice about medications is that they should be given at home.  When this is not possible and a medication must be given during school time, please be prepared to follow these State mandated rules.  ALL MEDICATIONS -- even "over the counter" medications, as well as anything ordered by your doctor must have the District Authorization Form completed by both doctor and parents.  Please bring a limited supply of the medication your doctor has ordered to the nurse's office.  The medication must have a current label with the patient's name, name of medicine, dosage, frequency of administration and doctor's name.

  • If your child must have this medication over a long period of time, please make sure to replenish his supply at regular intervals.  Most children do not remember that they have to "get the medicine bottle refilled".  We need your help to keep the supply available for your child.

  • In June, we request that you collect your child's medication before the close of the school year.

  • When children who require medication during the school day attend a field trip, the district will make every effort to provide a school nurse on the trip to administer the medication.  However, in the event that a nurse cannot be hired to attend the field trip New Jersey law requires that any child who needs medication during a field trip must have either:

    1.      Their own parent on the field trip to dispense the medication OR

    2.      Do without his/her dose for the day (you may request that it be given at a delayed time).  Please send this request in writing to the school nurse.

  • Exceptions: No child may carry and/or self medicate UNLESS the medication is an inhaler for asthma or an Epi-pen and that child must have certification by a doctor that he/she has a life threatening problem.  The Self Medication form must be completed and submitted to the school nurse.


  • If it is necessary to keep a child home from school, please call the office before the start of school.

  • If the school does not receive a call from parents, we will call your home.

  • When a child returns to school after being absent, a note must be presented from home stating the reason for the absence.
