Please contact me with any health concerns or questions that you may have. It is important to let me know if there are any changes in your child's health including new allergies, new medications, hospitalizations, or any other pertinent medical information. Open communication will ensure that health issues are addressed appropriately. By working together, I am confident that we can make this an exciting, safe and healthy school year for your child.
Current Health Issues
The NJ Department of Children and Families is continuing to monitor the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus and its impact on children and families. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and NJ Department of Health are providing ongoing guidance and direction regarding necessary precautions and action plans for schools. The experts agree that Coronavirus prevention strategies are similar to what we do to prevent the flu:
  • Wash your hands in soap and water, regularly
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow
  • Avoid touching your face, mouth and eyes
  • If you are feeling unwell, stay home and rest
These measures with the addition of mask wearing and spacial distancing are being practiced to ensure the health and safety or students and staff throughout the school day.
 
Please continue to accurately complete your daily COVID questionnaire. Contact the health office for any questions or concerns related to illness and refer to the attached document "Parent Guideline COVID-19" for details about required medical clearance for return to school after illness during this pandemic.
