    During this time of remote learning, if you need to get in touch with me, please continue to leave a message on my voicemail or email me (see above for phone number and email address). I can access my voicemail and email from home.

     *** Please remember handwashing is a top priority!! Also reinforce not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth and to cover all coughs and sneezes.  This was all reviewed with your children but reinforcement is always useful and helpful!!! Thank you in advance for your continued support with helping each other stay healthy!!!

    Some Important Reminders When We Return To School...

    BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS/CLASSROOM PARTIES

    • Because of multiple food allergies, we are encouraging crafts and classroom activities for birthdays and celebrations.

    IMMUNIZATIONS

    • All students must comply with New Jersey State Immunization requirements or they will be excluded from school. 

    MEDICATIONS 

    • If your child needs to have medicine (prescribed or over the counter) during the school day contact the health office and you will be given forms to be filled out by the parent/guardian and the physician. 
    • Medication must be provided in a pharmacy container with proper label and date. 
    • All medication must be brought to school by an adult.
