    Important Information for New Students


    If your child is sick, PLEASE keep him/her home.

    Call the attendance office at 732-634-5858 x.3010 to report the absence.

    If you take your child to the doctor, please ask for a note and bring it in when returning to school.


    Emergency Cards: 

    A new emergency card must be completed annually for each student and returned for use in emergency situations.

    Additionally, during the school year, a new emergency card must be filled out if there is any change of address, phone number or parent place of employment.

    Students without emergency cards will not be permitted to participate in school field trips or other activities.


    Medication Policy and Permission:

    Prescription and/or over-the-counter medications for students will only be given during the school day with parental and doctor's authorization as indicated on the completed Authorization for Medication at School form.

    All medication must be in the original, labeled prescription container and brought to the Nurses’ Office upon arrival at school.

    Under no circumstances will any medication be allowed to be taken in school without this form completed by you AND your doctor.

    Students who are prescribed self-administered medication for asthma and/or allergies are required to keep a backup inhaler and/or emergency allergy medications (including EpiPen) in the Nurses’ Office for emergency use.


    Physical Exams:

    All new incoming students, all 9th and 11th-grade students, all students applying for working papers, and all students participating in Academy sports, are required to have a physical examination within 365 days of the first 30 days of the school year.

    If the parent or guardian wishes that the student have the examination done by the school physician, the parent must indicate their preference in writing on the Acknowledgement for School Physical form


    P.E. Excuse Procedure:

    If, for any reason, a student cannot participate in the full gym program, a note must be brought from home.

    If this disability extends for more than two (2) school days, a doctor’s note must be submitted indicating the length of time your child is to be excused. The note will be submitted to the school nurse for recording.

    Under no circumstances are students with medical excuses allowed to participate in sports or gym activities. Students must remain where assigned unless excused by the teacher in charge.

    All doctors’ notes to be excused from or limit Physical Education participation must be renewed, in writing, each school year.
