The “Register Ready” Special Needs Registry for Disasters is an online registry in which citizens can provide emergency response agencies with important information (e.g., if a resident is wheelchair bound or requires medical apparatus) so that emergency responders can be better prepared to serve those individuals during a natural disaster or other emergency.
NJDOE is encouraging schools to circulate information about the registry to parents and guardians of students. Click here for information on the Monmouth County Special Needs Registry.
 
 
 

                                                                        Winter Reminders from the School Nursej0232190


  • All medications, even those sold over-the-counter (Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc.) require a signed medication release form from the doctor, as well as written parental consent, to be administered by the nurse in the health room. j0232190


  • The school nurse has approval to administer Chloraseptic spray and salt water gargles to all students to ease nagging coughs or sore throats.  Having your child keep a water bottle at their desk can also help lessen these symptoms.  Cough drops are not permitted due to choking hazard.


  • Chapped lips are very common this time of year, so if your child is susceptible, please send lip-balm/chapstick with them in their backpack for personal use.


  • Remember that if your child is sick and has a fever, he/she must be fever-free for 24hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) before returning to school.  j0232190


  • If your child has vomited or had diarrhea at home, it is best to keep him or her home until symptom-free for 24 hours.


  • If your child will be absent due to illness, please remember to call the office and let them know.  Please send in a note upon his or her return to school.  If you have a note from the doctor, remember to send that in as well.

  • Students do go outdoors for recess during the winter months.  Coats, hats and gloves are necessary to keep them warm during their free time. j0232190


  • Please feel free to contact Mrs. Moriarty in the health room with any questions!j0232190

Tips To Keep Your Children Safe and Healthy:

 

  • Please review proper handwashing with your children.  It is very important for them to wash their hands before eating, and after playtime and toileting. Handwashing is the best defense against germs.

 

  • Please encourage your children to drink plenty of water. It is important that they drink 6-8 glasses of water each day to maintain proper hydration.   

 

  • Please dress your children in layers.  There may be variations in temperature throughout the day and layers are the best way to go. The children go outside for recess on most days weather permitting so please make sure they remember their coats on cold days.

 

  • Please check to see that your children are wearing proper footwear to school every day. Clogs, shoes with smooth soles, flip-flops and sandals are not safe for playground play.

 

  • Please allow your children time to rest at home if they are sick.  If your child has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, vomiting or diarrhea, please keep them home.  They may not return until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication.

 

  • Please make sure your children are eating a nutritious meal before arriving at school.  Children that are feeling hungry may have difficulty concentrating.
