Dear Parents and Guardians:
This year, I will be screening tenth graders for height, weight, vision, and hearing. You will be notified of any problems or referrals.
In addition, I will be checking your child for scoliosis, which is a curvature of the spine. If your child is under the care of a doctor for this condition, or if you do not want your child screened, please notify me, in writing, by October 9, 2011.
A vital part of our school health services requires our having up-to-date records on your child. If your child receives an immunization of any kind, please send me a note so I can keep the health records current.
If your child is ill, please call the attendance office at (201) 327-8700 ext. 260 on the first day of absence. Any contagious illness requires a doctor’s note upon returning.
Medication may be given to students only under certain conditions and with a doctor’s note. (See page seven of the Student/Parent Handbook.) To access necessary medical forms, including life-threatening allergies requiring Epipen or illness such as asthma, click on the "Forms" menu to the left. Open, print, and complete forms, as needed. Have your child return them to me. Please call me at (201) 327-8700 ext. 213 if you have any questions.
Catherine Kiely, MSRN
