Welcome to the Bordentown Regional High School Nurse website.

 

Welcome to my site.  

I know attendance is a concern for most parents and students here at the high school, however, if you are running a fever or vomiting, please stay home.  Use your judgment whether to come to school or stay home.  Also remember to call the attendance office (298-0025) if you are going to be out of school for the day. 

Medications in School:

If your student requires any medication to be given during the school day, you MUST have proper documentation in order for the medication to be given during school hours.  This includes all prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications.  Students are NOT permitted to carry any medications, both prescribed or over-the-counter, during school hours.  All BRSD schools are now permitted to administer both Tylenol and Advil to students as long as we have parent permission.  Therefore, these medications should remain home and not in school.

  1. Medication form (found at the bottom of this page) filled out by the physician and signed by the parent/guardian.
  2. Medication must be brought into school by an adult.  If it is a prescription medication, it must be brought to school in an original medicine bottle with pharmacy label on it.

ASTHMA medications:  Requires the completion of the New Jersey State mandated Asthma Action Plan.  You may find the form at the bottom of this page.  Please review and have the form completely filled out (both sides) and return it to me as soon as possible.    Students are permitted to self-carry and medicate for their asthma as long as there is an Asthma Action Plan on file in my office. 

Life Threatening Allergies:  If your student has any life threatening allergies and requires the use of an Epi-Pen, please contact the nurse so we can provide a safe learning environment for your child.  If your student has been prescribed medication by his/her physician for their allergies, please see below for the appropriate form to be completed by both your physician and parent so the medication may be carried and given while your student is in school.    

***One note for all medication forms - these forms are only good for one year.  Therefore, they need to be renewed and sent in to school each school year.  This is a State of New Jersey mandate.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

Notes to Remember:

 

During the school year please inform me if you have any changes in your phone numbers, emergency contact information or change of address. It is extremely important for me to have your current information so that I may be able to reach you if your child becomes ill or injured while in school.

Any medication that needs to be administered during school hours, MUST have the proper forms on file and medication in the nurse's office.

If your child has an injury, stitches, cast or on crutches please send in a doctor's note about your child's activity/participation restrictions as well as a note when your child may resume normal activities.
