Security and Sign in Procedures

In order to enter the school, all visitors and volunteers are required to buzz the office by pushing the silver button located to the left of the visitor door. Once you are buzzed into the building, please report to the office to sign in and pick up a visitor or volunteer badge. You must bring a driver's license with you in order to receive a badge.

Deliveries of any kind (forgotten homework, birthday treats, lunches, etc.) are to be made directly to the office only, not to the classroom.

When entering the building PLEASE DO NOT hold the door for other visitors/volunteers. They must buzz in and state their purpose for entering the building. Thank you for your cooperation.


Please be sure to get your three clearances if you plan to volunteer in our school. Volunteer information can be found on our district website. If you previously submitted your clearances, please be sure they are up-to-date. Contact the office if you have any questions.

From the Nurse's Desk

Below you will find information regarding health room procedures. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the health room nurses at 610-473-1770.

Physical & Dental Forms: All state mandated Kindergarten and 3rd grade private dental forms and all Kindergarten private physical exam forms are due now. If you have an upcoming appointment, please notify the health room of the appointment and we will make note of the date in your child’s record.

Medication Information: If your child requires prescription or over-the-counter medication while at school, a medication authorization form must be completed by your physician. Once completed, please submit the paperwork, then contact the health room to schedule an appointment to drop off your child’s medication. Prescription medications must be in an original pharmacy labeled container. Over-the-counter medication must be in original packaging. Please refer to the BASD website for more information.

Returning Paperwork: Please return any health room forms (Physical, Dental, Medication) via email if possible. You can scan and email the original document or email a photograph from your phone to either ewismer@boyertownasd.org or ekovach@boyertownasd.org

When to keep your child home:

As stated in the BASD student handbook, if your child exhibits any of the following symptoms, it is recommended that you keep your child home from school and consult with the child’s primary health care provider:

1. A cough interfering with your child’s sleep or ability to participate in school activities

2. A cough that is productive and has phlegm or is associated with fever or trouble breathing.

3. Fever: A temperature equal to or greater than 100 degrees without the use of a fever reducing medication. Please note that the student’s temperature should remain normal without the use of fever reducing medication for 24 hours prior to the return to school.

4. Nausea, Vomiting or diarrhea

5. Unusual skin eruptions, hives or rash.

6. Redness or drainage from the eyes.

Please refer to the BASD student handbook for more information.

*We recommend keeping a change of clothing in your child’s backpack, regardless of their age, as clothing can become soiled due to a bathroom accident, fall outside in the mud, or because of spilling food/drink.*
