All students trying out for a school sport must have a current yearly physical on file. Please click on my Sports Forms page for a copy of this form.
If a student has had a sports physical in the last 365 days and it is on file in the Nurse's office you may click on "Health Update/Repeat Athlete Form - Schedule C" to download this form. This form is to be completed and signed by a parent and handed into the Nurse's office PRIOR to student trying out for a sport.
The State of NJ highly recommends that students get physical examinations at least once during each developmental stage: Early childhood (pre-school through grade 3), pre-adolescence (grade four through six), and adolesence (grade seven through twelve).
***Please call or email the nurse if your child is going to be absent and what is going on. ****
If someone has covid symptoms: please test for covid (rapid tests available for free from the school), keep home until fever, vomit and diarrhea free for 24 hrs without medications. If someone is positive for covid: stay home for 5 days, if fever free for 24 hrs and symptoms improving then can return on day 6 wearing a well fitting surgery or n95 mask for days 6-10. If someone in the house has covid: please test the student for covid every other day, monitor for symptoms and have them wear a mask for school. General recommendations: wash hands with soap and water, cover your cough and sneeze, and stay home if you are sick. If you have a cold (already tested negative for covid) wearing a mask can be a good way to not share germs with others. We are no longer contact tracing or quarantining close contacts. We will send home a letter of notification if a person in a class is positive for covid so you can monitor for symptoms or test for covid if you would like.
