    Authorization for Medications to be Taken During School Hours

    Any child requiring medication during school hours must submit an authorization form completed by a doctor with the child’s name, medication name, dosage and time to be given. This is also a New Jersey state law and there can be no exception. At no time is a child of any age allowed to carry any medication on his/ her person. All medication, prescription or over the counter, must be dispensed through the nurse’s office.   

    Vision Tests for Students Entering School

    Please be advised that we do not require a vision test, but I strongly recommend that your child have his/ her eyes examined by a qualified physician before the beginning of the school year. This is especially important for children whose parents wear glasses. Young children may not realize that their vision is abnormal and so they will very rarely complain. Students' vision will be tested on a yearly basis in the nurse's office.

    Any questions, please feel free to call our school and ask for the nurse. 856.939.0333

    Thank you for your time and attention to your child’s health.


    Sincerely,


    Angela Patterson, B.S.N., R.N.
