Hello—As summer break comes to a close remember your student will need to be up to date with their immunizations and must have at least one entry physical to stay in school. The State of New Jersey requires at least 1 entry physical examination by a doctor and certain immunizations. Students who are less than 5 years old (60 months) are required to have the influenza vaccine (FLU) on or before January 1. If your child takes medications during the school day, contact your school nurse.
The goal of school health services is to strengthen and assist (facilitate) the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of students and staff.
