Welcome Back 2018
Time has been “flying by” here in the Health Office! Kelly & I have been busy taking care of student’s scrapes and falls @ recess, as well as “trying to fend off seasonal allergies and asthma which comes with the Fall weather. Pumpkin picking was a wonderful event for all, how nice of the HSA bringing the pumpkin patch to Bogota! Thanksgiving brought awareness of those less fortunate than us, and students rose to the occasion by hosting food and coat drives, just to mention a few. Now the Christmas season is upon us as we approach the New Year, 2019 !
In the Health Office Kelly & I are reminding parents of the 6th Grade immunizations and Physicals, we encourage all parents to send a copy of their student’s physicals, so we can keep our health charts current. Thank you for those parents who have already done so. In addition to Winter fun in the snow, comes the flu! We encourage all students to have this vaccine, and for those students under 60 months, it is mandatory to be immunized for influenza in the state of NJ. Thank you parents for your cooperation.
As always, the best prevention of sharing illnesses is hand washing! All students’ who come into the Health Office wash their hands and we offer them water to maintain hydration for optimal health. As always, all students who go home with temperatures of 100, need to be fever free for 24 hours without having medication. Please call us at the health office if your child has been diagnosed with a contagious disease, this helps us as well as the other student’s parents! Thank you again for helping us to keep everyone well.
Thank you for helping us to keep the students’ healthy, so they may learn!
We all work as a team and look forward to keeping the students well, safe and secure. We want them to always feel they can come to us with anything as we are their advocates first and foremost. Please feel free to drop by the Health Office with any questions or concerns. You can now call the health office directly, just call the main number, 201 487-8641 and our extension is 236 If you have any questions, you may call us, if the phone is busy, we are taking care of your children.
