Novel Coronavirus Information for Parents
School nurses lead health promotion and disease prevention in schools. Your School nurses advise students, families, and staff to:
1. Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
2. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
4.Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
5. Your School Custodian will clean and disinfect surfaces or objects on a regular basis and as needed.
6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill.
7. Wash hands for 20 seconds. Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs.

FLU 2021

Influenza causes more hospitalizations among young children than any other vaccine-preventable disease. The single best way to protect against seasonal flu and its potential severe complications is for children to get a seasonal influenza vaccine each year. Flu vaccination is recommended for all children aged 6 months and older. Making healthy choices at school and at home can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others.

Encourage children, parents, and staff to take the following everyday preventive actions to prevent flu pdf icon[2MB, 2 pages]:

  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill.

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.

The State of New Jersey, Department of Health and Senior Services, has mandated that children born after January 1997 and entering 6th grade must receive a booster dose of Diphtheria, Pertussis and Tetanus (Tdap) and one dose of the Meningococcal vaccine. Documentation of having received these vaccines must be provided upon entry into 6th grade. If your child receives these immunizations during his/her 5th grade school year, please send documentation your child’s school nurse.

If you have any questions regarding this requirement, please contact the health office at your child’s school. 


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.
