Be a FLU FIGHTER!  Get your flu shot today. Reminder:  All students under the age of 5 and enrolled in Pre K must receive a FLU shot by December 31 to remain in school. Please call your doctor TODAY to get your child's flu shot!  

 The best defense against any illness is GOOD HAND WASHING!  Sing the "ABC" song or "Happy Birthday"twice to help your child wash his/her hands long enough to get them clean.   Here is a fun youtube video about 'Handy and His Helpers' who learn the right way to wash their hands.

                                                     SICK DAY GUIDELINES:

    Please keep your child home if s/he has …
  • a fever 100 degrees or more (even the night before)
  •  a stomach ache, nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting (even the night before)
  • nagging, hacking cough, sneezing, or has a runny nose with thick green mucous
  • sore throat with headache
  • red or pink eyes, with or without discharge
  • any open, weepy sore 
  • Children should also be fever free for 24 hours without taking any fever-reducing medicine, such as Tylenol or Motrin before returning to school.

Any and all absences from school need to be called in to the SCHOOL NURSE by 9:00am at 732-652-7991.  Upon return to school, please submit a note explaining the reason for absence.  Absences for 3 days or more require a doctor’s note upon return.

 

If your doctor prescribes medicine for your child, try to schedule it when the child is home.  If medicine is absolutely necessary during the school day, a Bound Brook Medication Permission Form must be filled out and signed by your doctor and the parent.  All medicines MUST be brought to school by the parent or guardian.  Of course, the parent may come to the school at any time and administer medication to his/her child in the nurse’s office, if that is more convenient.

 

 Need a doctor?  Does your child need immunizations?  No health insurance? 
Contact the Community Visiting Nurses Association to find out if you are eligible for FREE immunizations and well-baby care.   Call   908-725-9355   ext 0.   Se hable espanol.
