School Health Information
  • Medications - Our best advice about medications
    is that they should be given at home.  When this
    is not possible and a medication must be given
    during school time, please be prepared to follow
    these State mandated rules.  ALL MEDICATIONS --
    even "over the counter" medications, as well as
    anything ordered by your doctor must have the
    District Authorization Form completed by both
    doctor and parents.  Please bring a limited
    supply of the medication your doctor has ordered
    to the nurse's office.  The medication must have
    a current label with the patient's name, name of
    medicine, dosage, frequency of administration and
    doctor's name.
  • If your child must have this medication over a
    long period of time, please make sure to
    replenish his supply at regular intervals.  Most
    children do not remember that they have to "get
    the medicine bottle refilled".  We need your help
    to keep the supply available for your child.

School Health, Cont.
  • In June, we request that you collect your child's
    medication before the close of the school year.
  • When children who require medication during the
    school day attend a field trip, the district will
    make every effort to provide a school nurse on
    the trip to administer the medication.  However,
    in the event that a nurse cannot be hired to
    attend the field trip New Jersey law requires
    that any child who needs medication during a
    field trip must have either
  • 1.      Their own parent on the field trip to
    dispense the medication OR
  • 2.      Do without his/her dose for the day (you
    may request that it be given at a delayed time). 
    Please send this request in writing to the school
  • Exceptions No child may carry and/or self
    medicate UNLESS the medication is an inhaler for
    asthma or an Epi-pen and that child must have
    certification by a doctor that he/she has a life
    threatening problem.  The Self Medication form
    must be completed and submitted to the school

School Health, Cont.
  • The following documentation must be submitted for
    every student before being permitted to enter the
    Haddonfield School District
  • A health history completed by the parent.
  • A complete report of a physical exam that was
    done after September 1, 2008 and is signed and
    dated by the healthcare provider (please be sure
    that the actual signature is on the form -
    stamps or office initials are not acceptable).
  • Documentation from a healthcare provider that all
    immunizations as required by N.J. Code (N.J.A.C.
    857-4) have been received. Please see Mrs.
    Macconis e-board for a complete list of required
  • Please note
  • If your child will not be 5 years old until after
    school begins and your healthcare provider will
    not give the required immunizations before the
    fifth birthday, you must submit a note from the
    healthcare provider stating that the child will
    receive the immunizations and the date of the
  • If there is a medical reason that the
    immunization can not be given, a note from the
    healthcare provider stating the reason (as
    recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics)
    must be submitted.

  • If it is necessary to keep a child home from
    school, please call the office before the start
    of school.
  • If the school does not receive a call from
    parents, we will call your home.
  • When a child returns to school after being
    absent, a note must be presented from home
    stating the reason for the absence.
  • If a child arrives late to school, come to the
    school office to sign him/her in and provide a
    written note explaining the reason for being
