    Welcome back to school.  I hope everyone had a great summer!  I look forward to  working with all of your children promoting health and wellness  at Yardville Heights School. 

    A few reminders to ensure the safety and health of your children

    • Emergency contact cards must be updated, any changes please notify the nurse's office by e-mail or phone @609-631-4171 ,extension 2956. Health records are important to be up to date, any changes please call or e-mail gmelone@hamilton.k12.nj.us.
    • Please report any student that is absent by 10AM and the reason that they are absent.  Please call 609-631-4171 , extension 3, to ensure the safety and wellness of your child.

    • Keep your child home if they have a temperature of 100 or greater, any vomiting,diarrhea, or infectious disease such as conjunctivitis(pink eye).

    • Please also remember that they must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.

    • Please remember that all medication to be given at school must be in the original container and accompanied by a physician's order. Also, parents/guardians must deliver each medication and sign a parental consent. No student is to deliver any medication to school including any over the counter medications.

    • If your child needs cough drops at school a note from you along with the drops are to be brought into the nurses office.

    My office is open from 8:30AM until 3:45PM daily.  Please feel free to drop in if you have any questions or concerns about your child. 

    I look forward to working with your children this  school year.
