Absences
If your child will be absent, please call the main office (973) 509-4242 and leave a message on the attendance line. Include the reason for the absence and the estimated time they will be out of school.

Illness & Injuries
If your child is experiencing any change in their medical status or has been newly diagnosed with asthma, food allergy or any other acute or chronic condition, please alert the school nurse.

Injuries such as fractures, stitches etc. must also be reported so that accommodations can be made if necessary.

Medications
Medications may not be given in school without written permission from the student’s doctor and parents/guardians. This applies to both prescription and over the counter medicine. Diagnosis of asthma, food allergy and epilepsy require an action plan.

Physical Exams/Immunization
Physical Exams are required of all students entering kindergarten or transferring to Northeast School from another school district, state, and/or country. Physicals are also recommended for students entering 6th grade.

NOTE: All forms such as medication and physical exam forms can be downloaded from the District School Nurse's Page, by clicking on the Forms link at the side of the district page.

Screenings
All students are screened annually for height, weight, and blood pressure.
New Jersey State Guidelines are followed for vision, hearing and scoliosis screening. Parent/guardians will be notified if follow-up is recommended.
