    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:

     

    Absence Line: 

     

    908-709-6995

     

    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

     

    Jewelry:

    Students are not allowed to wear jewelry (ear-rings, necklaces, etc.) during gym classes.  Students wearing jewelry will not be allowed to participate.

     

    Flip Flops:

    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.

     

    Allergies: 

    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.
