Deborah Heart & Lung Sudden Cardiac Death Screening for Students May 11, 2019 starting at 9 am
According to the American Heart Association, Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) usually strikes school-aged children without warning…and the results are usually fatal. SCA is the number one health-related cause of death in the US during a child’s adolescent years. A quick and painless cardiac screening, including an electrocardiogram (ECG), significantly increases the likelihood of identifying a cardiovascular condition, which may otherwise go undetected until it’s too late. Whether a student-athlete, member of the marching band, or member of the chess club, if a child has not had a cardiac evaluation, (s)he is at risk.
Register online today at www.DeborahFoundation.org Screening appointments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis, and are limited to adolescents aged 12–19 who register in advance. Legal guardian must register and accompany minors. 200 Trenton Road, Browns Mills, NJ 08015

Parent information concerning the Coxsackie Virus (Hand, Foot, & Mouth) from the NJ Dept. of Health
Hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) or coxsackievirus is a common viral illness that is most frequently seen in the summer and early fall. This illness generally is mild and is most commonly caused by coxsackievirus A16 and enterovirus 71. Although lab tests for coxsackieviruses can be done, most infections are diagnosed by clinical features.

There is no vaccine to protect against HFMD and no specific treatment for HFMD. Fever and pain can be managed with over-the-counter fever reducers and pain relievers. It is important for people with HFMD to drink enough fluids to prevent dehydration (loss of body fluids).

 To prevent the spread of HFMD, the NJDOH recommends:
 • Increase handwashing with soap and water or alcohol hand rub (must contain 60% alcohol).
 • Increase cleaning of commonly touched surfaces (e.g., desks, door knobs, keyboards, sports equipment, countertops).
 • Avoid close contact such as kissing, hugging, or sharing eating utensils, water bottles or cups with infected people.
• Cover coughs and sneezes with your inner elbow or a tissue and throw the tissue away immediately.
Parents should keep students home from school until your child is fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medicine.

JR/SR HIGH SCHOOL INFORMATION

7th Grade-HPV information

New Jersey has one of the six lowest rates for vaccination against the human papilloma virus, or HPV. This is a series of vaccinations for both boys and girls to help prevent certain types of cancer.

While 60 percent of girls nationally got at least one dose of the vaccine — three are recommended — New Jersey's rate was just 48 percent. Only five states had lower rates — Tennesee, Mississippi, Alaska, Missouri and the lowest, Kansas. The vaccine series is given over a 6-month time frame, much like the Hepatitis B series.

The vaccine protects both boys and girls against the several strains of the virus, which can cause cervical cancer, genital warts and some forms of oral cancer. It is not a mandatory vaccine in New Jersey.

The virus is spread mostly through sex — which means the vaccine must be given before the onset of sexual activity to be effective. For that reason, the CDC recommends it be given to children when they are 11 or 12 years old.

The State of New Jersey is requiring us to send a fact sheet on HPV to each 7th-grade parent on a yearly basis so that parents/guardians may make an informed decision on whether to vaccinate their child or not. If you have any additional questions, please contact me. Please see the fact sheet below for in-depth information.
