Welcome to the Health Office!
Please keep your child home if they have had a fever of 100.0 degrees or higher. The student may return to school when fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing agents. If the student has a sore throat, an upset stomach, or a rash, parents are encouraged to keep the student home and contact the family doctor. If the parent/guardian suspects that their student has a communicable disease, the student should be taken to his/her family doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Parents/guardians shall be required to contact the school and report any absence, and in particular report if the student is absent with a communicable disease. Please use good judgement before sending your student to school.
Physicals: The Clinton Township Board of Education requires a physical examination for all students entering the district for the first time and transfer students. The exam must be dated within one year of entry into school and needs to be documented on the NJ State Annual Physical Exam Form. A current immunization record should be submitted with the physical exam. Forms are available on this website.
If you do not have health insurance please contact us for alternate arrangements.
Illness/Injury: A school nurse will assist with illness, injuries, or health related issues. In the case of serious injury or illness, the parents/guardians will be notified. Please update the school if emergency contact information changes during the school year.
Child Study Team Assessments: Our Health Office will screen students for Hearing and Vision prior to the parent meeting regarding Child Study Team. Please contact our office at [email protected] to schedule a time to come in!
