WELCOME TO THE WALNUT AVENUE SCHOOL HEALTH
School Nurse: Susan Stein
Maintaining a safe and healthy learning environment is our mission.
Following are a few reminders for parents to assist us in keeping all of our children healthy and happy at school:
Developing good attendance habits is essential for success at school. Whenever children are unable to come to school, please contact the school absence line at 908-709-6995. Leave your child’s name, grade, teacher and reason for absence.
Returning to School Following an Absence:
- Your child must be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication before he/ she can return to school
- Your child must be free of vomiting/ diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school
- Unexplained Rashes: If your child has a rash, we will need a doctor’s note stating that the condition is non-contagious before returning to school
Students are not allowed to wear jewelry (ear-rings, necklaces, etc.) during gym classes. Students wearing jewelry will not be allowed to participate.
Please do not send your child to school in flip flops. These can pose safety issues at recess.
Coats, Hats, Gloves:
We send children outdoors for recess whenever possible. Please be sure our child is dressed appropriately for the weather.
Always check your child’s class allergy list whenever sending food or treats for the class.
NEVER HESITATE TO CALL THE NURSE’S OFFICE ANY TIME YOU HAVE A QUESTION OR CONCERN.
