If your child is sick, PLEASE keep him/her home. Call the attendance office at 732-634-5858 x.3010 to report the absence. If you take your child to the doctor, please ask for a note and bring it in when returning to school.
2 new emergency cards must be completed annually for each student and returned for use in emergency situations.
Completed cards must be turned in to the homeroom teacher during the first week of school.
Additionally, during the school year, 2 new emergency cards must be filled out if there is any change of address, phone number or parent place of employment.
Students without emergency cards will not be permitted to participate in school field trips or other activities.
Medication Policy and Permission:
Medication for students in need will be given during the school day (prescription or over the counter) with parental and medical authorization.
All medication must be in a properly labeled prescription container and brought to the Nurses’ Office upon arrival at school.
Under no circumstances will any other medication be allowed to be taken in school.
Students who are prescribed self-administered medication for asthma are strongly urged to keep a backup inhaler in the Nurses’ Office for an emergency.
All 9th and 11th-grade students, as well as all new students at the Academy for Allied Health and Biomedical Sciences, are required to have a physical examination upon entrance to the school.
If, for any reason, the parent or guardian wishes that the student have the examination done by the family physician, the parent must sign and check the appropriate box on the reverse side of the emergency card.
P.E. Excuse Procedure:
If, for any reason, a student cannot participate in the full gym program, a note must be brought from home. If this disability extends for more than five (5) school days, a doctor’s note must be submitted indicating the length of time you are to be excused. The note should be brought to the school nurse for recording.
Under no circumstances are students with medical excuses allowed to participate in gym activities. Students must remain where assigned unless excused by the teacher in charge.
All doctors’ notes to be excused from or limit Physical Education participation must be renewed, in writing, each school year.
