    Health Concerns 

    Please inform the nurse’s office of any new medical conditions such as asthma, life threatening allergies, surgeries or health concerns that have occurred during the summer.  Feel free to stop by the office, call (609-631-4157 ext 3905) or email (abutler@hamiltonk12.nj.us) to discuss these changes or concerns.

    Medications 

    NO child is to take or carry PRESCRIPTION OR OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS to school (cough drops, Tylenol, allergy medication, etc.)  If a child, by order of a physician must receive medications in school, District policy requires both parent and physician signature prior to administrating medication. Therefore, a prescription label IS NOT acceptable in lieu of an MD’s order. A written order must be obtained.  These forms are available in the nurse’s office.  MEDICATION MUST BE IN THE ORIGINAL CONTAINER WITH THE PRESCRIPTION ORDER VISIBLE.

    Food Allergies

    Per District policy, we request all families be sensitive and respectful of all children in our community.  Please consider bringing a small craft, games, or a small gift to students like pencils, erasers or crayons instead of food for birthday and holiday celebrations.  Check out the left side of this web page for ideas.  If you decide a food item is the only choice, the treat must be announced 1 week before the date OR THE TREAT WILL NOT BE SHARED WITH THE CLASS.  Please consider the allergies in your classroom and we can work together to pick a treat that includes the whole class.

    Emergency Contacts

    Please remember to fill out the parent portal emergency contact information with current phone numbers in case of an emergency.  It is critical to have this information in the case of illness or emergencies, nothing is more frightening to a child than not having their parent at the hospital with them.  If that number changes for any length of time (business trip, vacation) please alert the office immediately with the contact person’s name and phone number. 


    Attendance policy

    A note from a parent/legal guardian is required for every absence, unless you have a doctors note (no absence is excused)!  The note should state the date, reason for the absence and signed by parent/guardian.  If a student is going to be absent for an extended period of time please let the school know, so that supplemental assignments can be sent home.  Absences for more than 2weeks confirmed by a physician will qualify students to receive home instruction.  *Religious holidays and Take your child to work day are not counted against a pupil's attendance record.
