Parents/Guardians are encouraged to contact me at any time. It helps me to get to know your child when you share your concerns with me. If your child receives a medication (at home in the morning) that he/she does not receive regularly, please let me know. Should your child come to the office that day, I'll have a better idea of what's going on with him/her. Also, if your child has had recent minor surgery or dental work, and he or she may require an over-the-counter pain reliever, please be sure to provide a physician's order and the medicine in it's origianl container. A FAX order from a physician's office is acceptable FAX is 973-966-1925.
Children are encouraged to visit the health office when they do not feel well provided they have the approval of their teachers. Teachers will contact me when a child has a suspected allergic reaction, suspected blood sugar issues, a head injury, or any other potential emergency. I will go to the classroom and escort the child to the health office in these situations.
I can be reached at TJS from 8:15 am to 3:45 pm. From 11:20 through 12:45, I am in the Main Office. The office is close to the playground and cafeteria where I am needed most during that time. However, I can not be reached directly by phone at that time. Please call the main office if you need to reach me then. I can be found in the health office the rest of the day!
