Physical Education Medical Excuses
Doctor's notes excusing students from physical activity must be handed in directly to the nurse (not the P.E. teacher) during homeroom. Students will receive a blue note from the nurse that must be shown to the P.E. teacher, coaches and recess teacher, if applicable. An alternate assignment will be given to students who are excused from P.E.
If a student is able to participate on a limited basis, it must be explained in writing. The teacher will modify physical activity, if appropriate.
An excuse note extending three days may not be from a parent. Extended excuse notes must come from a doctor.
All doctor's and parent's notes must include:

To All Parents,
Please make sure you update your email addresses in the parent portal. I frequently use email to communicate IMPORTANT messages and have recently discovered that quite a few are not working.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon,

Illness or Lateness
Please call the absentee line at 201-816-4910 by 8:30 AM if your child will be absent or late. Any student absent for 3 or more consecutive days will require a doctor's note in order to return to school.
STUDENTS WITH INJURIES
To insure the safety and well being of all our students please advise the nurse of any injury that may alter or interfere with your child's functioning during the day. Any student returning to school on crutches, with braces, or with casts must report to the Health Office before the start of the day.
Student Health Services
As mandated by state law, all students will be screened for height, weight and blood pressure every year. If you do not want your child to receive these services please notify the Health Office in writing by the 15th of September.

Before ANY medication, even over the counter remedies, may be administered to or taken by any student during school hours, written permission from the parent/guardian and signed orders from the doctor are required.
