The Hive's Health Hints

    • Winter is lingering, please send your child with appropriate clothing to be outside, as long as it is not raining/snowing and above 32 degrees we try to get the children outside at some point during their day.

    • If your child is sick and you or your doctor would like a COVID test done, the school requires that you report the results of the COVID test to the nurse by sending a picture of the results via email. We now accept rapid and PCR tests. Your child can return to school when a negative test result is received in the nurse's office and your child’s symptoms have improved in the past 24 hours. See our website for other COVID guidance.

    • Please have a change of clothes in your child's backpack in case of an accident, in the bathroom, or at lunch!! Spills happen. We have a limited supply of clothes in the nurse's office to give to children. Please remember to replace the clothing once it has been used.


    To report an absence please call (973) 838-1311 press 1

    or email kbarile@bloomingdaleschools.org
