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. 

Information from the Health Office:      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.  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.
