Health Appraisal

Communicable Disease Control

Prevention and  the spread of communicable diseases in school and in the community requires cooperation and partnership between home and school.  The first step in the control of communicable diseases is the knowledge of  when and where these diseases occur.  For a detailed list of diseases that are reportable to the school please refer to page 27 of the District Calendar and Parent Handbook.  Please notify the school when your child is absent.

Immunization Review & Updates

The school nurses are responsible to ensure that immunizations records are reviewed and updated annually.  The school nurse will  recommend to the school principal those students to be excluded based on parent's failure to provide evidence of the student's immunizations as pursuant to N.J.A.C.8:57-4.1 though 4.16.  Please refer to immunization requirements on our webpage.
