School Health Services

The school nurse in each district school is a health services specialist who assists students in attaining and/or maintaining optimum health and in promoting positive health habits and attitudes. Health screenings are conducted annually as mandated by the NJ Administrative Code.  The screenings performed depend upon grade level and include:  height, weight, hearing, vision, color screening, scoliosis, and blood pressure.  If you do not wish to have your child screened for any of the above, please notify the school nurse in writing during the first week of school.  Services provided by the school nurse are listed below.
