KINDERGARTEN Requirements for 2022-2023 School Year
In preparation for the 2022-23 school year, parents of all in-coming kindergarteners MUST submit a copy of their child's most recent PHYSICAL EXAM (within the last calendar year) and a copy of their IMMUNIZATIONS. If your child's birthday is after October 1st, please have your pediatrician complete forms based on last years' physical. If your child has seasonal allergies, this should be included on the physical exam form.
If your child has Asthma or Food Allergies (requiring an Epipen), please have those forms filled out before school as well. If you plan on having your child buy lunch at school, please review the Maschio's Food Allergy Paperwork and submit the signed forms.
The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH), Vaccine Preventable Disease Program is reminding parents and healthcare providers (HCPs) that all children must comply with age-appropriate immunization requirements set forth in N.J.A.C. 8:57-4. Parents and guardians should plan ahead and schedule appointments with their pediatricians now to avoid the back-to-school rush in August.
Please submit ALL required paperwork in the first 30 days of school.
If it is not submitted, then your child may be excluded until the paperwork is turned in.
