MEDICATION: Our Board of Education policy and the N.J. Nurse Practice Act specify that if a child needs prescription or non-prescription medication in school, the parent or guardian must provide a written doctor's note with the child's name, dose, reason and time of administration. Forms are available in the nurse's office. The medication must be in the pharmacy container, and must be brought in by the parent. Parents may come in and administer medication to their children at any time.
PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS: Physical examinations are required on all kindergarten and new students. Forms can be obtained in the Health Office. Our school physician is also available for physical examinations for students who do not have a medical home.
