School Nurse’s Office
Assumption School is staffed every day from 7:00 AM – 2:30 PM by one of our two school nurses:
Andrea Bopp, RN
Marybeth Wooters, RN
Please refer to the following guidelines:
Physicals and Immunization Records- All students must have a current physical, which is signed, stamped and dated by the child’s doctor each year. The form can be found and downloaded from our website. A current copy of the immunization record should be attached with any additions. All medical forms can be found on the school website in the medical section: https://www.assumptionnj.org/forms/.
Athletics– In order to participate in a sport, your child’s physical must have been completed within 365 days of the first practice or tryout. Be sure that your doctor clears your child for participation on the Preparticipation Physical Evaluation form available on the school website. Students will not be allowed to try out or attend any practice for any sport if this is not completed.
Medications- Per NJ state law, no medications, including OTC’s (over the counter) will be administered without a current prescription from the child’s physician. Medications must be provided in their original container with the proper paperwork.
Absences- All absences should be emailed to the nurse at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your child’s name, grade and reason for absence. Please do not call if at all possible.
Allergies- Due to Covid changes all students are eating in their classrooms, therefore, we are a nut free school. Please do not send in any food containing peanuts or tree nuts. We encourage you to read all ingredient labels before sending in any food. Please send in all allergy medications with the proper paperwork to the nurse to be kept in our office.
PLEASE do not send a sick child to school. We will be using the guidelines from the NJ Department of Health and the CDC when determining if a child should be in school. Do NOT send your child to school with the following:
- At least TWO of the following symptoms: fever (100 or above), chills, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, congestion or runny nose; OR
- At least ONE of the following symptoms: cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, new olfactory (smell) disorder, or new taste disorder.
- At any time if you are concerned, you are strongly encouraged to contact your child’s doctor for clarification.
If any symptoms are noted at school the parent or emergency contact will be notified to pick up the child ASAP. Students will be monitored closely and kept in isolation until pick up. A note from your doctor will be required to return to school.
