  • Important Safety Information - 3/5/2018

    All is well.  However, I do want to inform you that at approximately 11:40 am this morning, we were notified by Cranford Police Department that non-school related police activity was occurring in the vicinity.  Out of an abundance of caution, Bloomingdale Avenue School entered into a shelter in place.

    We were notified at 12:10 pm that the police activity had ended.  Bloomingdale is now running a normal schedule.

  • nurse A few important reminders from your School Nurse...

    If your child will be absent please call the Health Office at 908-709-6973.  When reporting an absence be specific with your child’s symptoms and degree of temperature.  Please include this information when leaving a voicemail.    

    How long should I stay home if I’m sick?

    CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or other necessities. Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine, such as Tylenol®. You should stay home from work, school, travel, shopping, social events, and public gatherings.

    Take everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of germs.

    Try to avoid close contact with people that are ill.

    If you are sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting others,

    After your fever is gone, stay home at least one day, without the use of fever reducing medications..

    Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.  Germs spread this way.

    What are typical flu symptoms?

    Flu symptoms include, fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.  Some people may have diarrhea and vomiting.

    Thank you for your attention to this important health issue.

    As always, please remember to be mindful of where and how you park during drop off and pick up.  All drop off doors are monitored by a staff member from 8:20 AM-8:30 AM.  Once the doors are open, please feel free to drop and go; however if you would like to get out of the car and remain with your child, please park your car.  Remember, there is no parking in the horseshoe driveway, coned section of Albany Ave or right outside the Kindergarten door.  Your cooperation is appreciated as we keep our students safe as well as try to make ingress and egress as smooth as possible for everyone.

    One of the efforts to support anti-bullying in the schools is to collect information in the form of a School Self-Assessment.  Dr. Ward, Anti-Bullying Coordinator, has provided a letter inviting feedback on the 2016-17 Self-Assessment.  Please follow these links for complete information.
