COVID-19 Guidelines for 20-21 School Year



Please Stay home if you are not feeling well, whether or not you have a fever!

Practice Social Distancing by maintaining 6’ from others.

Perform hand hygiene frequently with warm, soapy water.

If you have traveled outside of New Jersey, notify the School Nurse for return guidance.

Please double check contact information with the Main Office in case we need to reach you for injury or illnesses.


A few other important things from the Nurse:

Mask Maintenance:  Please send an additional mask with your child should theirs become soiled or lost.

Be sure to wash mask daily!

Medications:  The School Nurse can only administer medications with a Doctor’s order from your child’s Physician.  Medication that does not have the proper documentation in the Health Office will be confiscated.  All necessary orders and forms needed for your child to have a medication held in the Health Office are on this website.

Physical Education Excuse:  If your child needs to be excused from or limited in Physical Education class, a physician’s excuse note is required. 


Breakfast! Breakfast! Breakfast!  Please have your child eat a healthy breakfast every morning.  A good breakfast is needed to help concentrate during the day.  It can also help to avoid fatigue, weakness, headaches, dizziness, nausea and abdominal pains during the day.
