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.
Any and all absences from school need to be called in to the SCHOOL NURSE by 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. See HEALTH FORMS for a copy. 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.
