If medication must be given during the school day, we will cooperate with parents as best we can. Only prescription medication brought in the pharmacy bottle for the particular child with a current date can be given by the school nurse. If she is not available to give the medication, the parent will have to make other arrangements. A note from the parent must accompany the prescription medication requesting that it be given, with MD form completed. Inhalers may be self-administered with the physician's approval.

Over-the-counter medications can only be given in school if they are accompanied by the physician's note and a note from the parent.

Throat lozenges may be brought to school only if absolutely necessary. They must be accompanied by a note from the parent. The teacher will hold them and allow the child to have as needed.

  • The school makes every attempt to provide an environment in which the child will be safe from accidents. If an accident or sudden illness occurs, First Aid will be administered and the child's parents will be requested to come for the child. Transportation cannot be provided.

  • No care beyond First Aid, defined as the immediate and temporary care in case of accident or sudden illness, will be given by the school physician or nurse.

All accidents must be reported to the school nurse.


Any child or person suspected to be ill with a communicable disease shall be excluded until a statement is presented that such child or person is not likely to transmit infection.  A child will be excluded if he/she has a fever of 100 degrees, is vomiting or has diarrhea. Other communicable conditions, so-called “nuisance” diseases, also require exclusion. They include head lice and/or nits, ringworm, scabies, impetigo, pinworm, conjunctivitis (pink eye), and open skin lesions.

NJ FAMILY CARE INFORMATION - Mandated Health Coverage for all Students age 18 and under

Recently signed legislation now mandates health insurance for all children age 18 and under. The requirement can be met through (1) health insurance provided by your employer, (2) a health insurance policy you purchase directly, or (3) through NJ FamilyCare, which provides free or low cost insurance for children and their parents. Enrollment in school insurance programs ONLY does NOT satisfy this mandate.

Information on NJ FamilyCare and eligibility is available through the school nurse in each of our school buildings. Uninsured families may contact the school nurse to learn more about the application process for NJ Family Care. All information will be kept strictly confidential.
