Elementary School Nurse

This new Web Page is a great way for us to communicate. I plan on using this page to share health news and updates, post some reminders that pertain to the health office, and to keep our families up-to-date about the health happenings at our school, such as, September is when we do heights and weights. I cannot wait to see how much these children have grown.I will always keep the health office guidelines on this site, just as a quick reference for our families. Health Office GuidelinesPlease remember the 24 hour guideline for keeping children home after an episode of vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever of 100.0 degrees or higher. This means that your child should stay home for 24 hours after the symptoms have subsided. Please do not treat a fever and send your child to school.

Again, welcome and please feel free to call my office anytime. 973-823-7000 ext. 8220.

Don't forget the rules for school bus safety:

Have a safe place to wait for your bus, away from traffic and the street.

Stay away from the bus until it comes to a complete stop and the driver signals you to enter.

When being dropped off, exit the bus and walk ten giant steps away from the bus.

Use the handrail to enter and exit the bus.

If you have to cross the street, walk at least ten feet in front of the bus. Make sure the bus driver sees you.

Wait for a signal from the bus driver before beginning to cross.

Do not cross the center line of the road until the driver has signaled that it is safe for you to continue walking.
