Satz School Nurse
All incoming 7th grade students need to complete medical forms. Please click "FORMS" on the left for details.Dear Parents and Students,
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to W. R. Satz School. I hope everyone had a happy and healthy summer. I look forward to a great school year. I have compiled a few health related issues that will help us navigate through the school school.
If you have any specific health concerns pertaining to your child, please give me a call at 732-946-1808 ext. 3434 or visit my website at www.holmdelschools.org, Satz School, Nurse’s Office, for forms and more specific information.
We have made a slight change in required forms for entering Satz School. This new change will help streamline paperwork for all new students and hopefully, avoid some confusion. The Confidential Health Appraisal and Health Examination Form for New Students will be replaced with the Preparticipation Physical Evaluation History Form and the Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Physical Examination Form. These two forms are components of the Sports Physical Packet. In addition, please ask the doctor to provide the school with a list of your child’s current immunizations.
If your child intends to participate in any school sport, he/she must have a completed Sports Physical Packet. This packet must be returned prior to the student trying-out for any sport. Every item on the forms must be completed. Incomplete forms will be returned to the student. To avoid confusion and other problems, I would like to suggest you make a copy of the paperwork and return the original to my office by the August 4th. Please keep in mind that sports start during the first full week of school. Sports Physicals are good for one full year from the date the physician performed the examination and not the date the paperwork was completed. Late forms will be reviewed on a first come basis. If your child’s examination was performed more than 90 days prior to the sports try-out date you must complete a Health History Update Questionnaire, also referred to as the Blue Recert Form. These forms can be found by clicking on "FORMS" on the upper left of this page.
State regulations prohibit the school nurse from administering any unauthorized medications to your child. This includes over the counter cough medicines, antacids, Tylenol, Advil, essential oils and topical ointments. Students are not permitted to carry or self-administer any medication unless it is authorized by their physician and is for a life-threatening illness. If you anticipate your child needing medication during the school day please visit my website and download a Food Allergy Action Form, Asthma Action Plan, or Authorization for Medication to be taken during School Hours. Section A should be completed by the parent and Section B needs to be completed, signed and stamped by the physician. The medication needs to be given to the school nurse along with the completed form. All over-the-counter medications need to be in their original unopened containers and prescription medications should be labeled with the student’s name, correct medication, dosage, and administration time.
If your child is sick please keep them home 24 hours after their symptoms have resolved and their fever is lower than 100 degrees without fever reducing medication i.e. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Advil (Ibuprofen). Even if your child tells you “I’m fine” or “I have to take a test”, do not allow him/her to return to school. Returning to school sick only exposes others to the illness and continues the cycle.
Once again, if you should have any questions, I will be posting my summer hours on my website so please feel free to contact me during those times.
Together we can make 2016-2017 a great year!
