A Note from our Nurse

We want to say, thank you to all of the parents that continue to work with us to keep our students and staff safe. We know it is not easy!

Important Information from the Student Health Office

1. Reporting your child's absence: Please remember to report your child's absence daily in Genesis or by calling the attendance line (973) 584-1643. The reason for your child's absence needs to be included. If your child is sick, the symptoms that he/she is experiencing need to be included.

2. When your child needs to be tested for Covid-19: Regardless of vaccination status, if your child is experiencing one of the "major" symptoms (new onset cough, shortness or breath, difficulty breathing or loss of taste or smell) or two of the "minor" symptoms (nasal congestion, fever, sore throat, chills/shivers, body aches, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or fatigue), the school requires either:

1) A negative Covid test done by a lab or medical facility (rapid or PCR)

Or

2) An alternative diagnosis from a physician.

If either of the above are not met, your your child can quarantine for 5 days (and then mask from day 6-10 upon return to school).

**Keep in mind the NJDOH guidance changes often so we could see changes to this in the near future.

3. Other reasons to keep your child home or contact the nurse:

-Your child has a fever

-Your child has vomited

-Your child has diarrhea

-Your child has a rash

-Your child has head lice

-Your child has an eye infection

-Your child has been in the hospital

*In addition to the above, with any other illness you should keep your child home until his or her symptoms are improving.

4. Please return clothes: If your child has been given a change of clothes by the Health Office, please send them back ASAP. We are running low on clothing for students that have accidents. It is not a bad idea to keep a change of clothes in your child's book bag in the event they spill something or get dirty during recess.

Reminders:

Testing:

We are now accepting rapid home tests, rapid tests done by a medical facility or lab and PCR tests.

Testing Sites:

Parents have had success with the testing sites listed below. Please check with your insurance provider to make sure the facility is in-network.

  • Riverside Medical Urgent Care-Ledgewood
  • Uri-Med Urgent Care-Randolph
  • LabQ- Mt. Olive (only PCR but very fast turnaround <24hrs)
  • CVS- Ledgewood

Masks:

Reminder masks are optional starting 3/7/2022. I am excited to see your kids' smiles. Please be advised that if your child does develop any of the Covid-19 symptoms while in school, a mask will be placed until the child can be picked up.

Should you have any health questions or concerns, you can reach Mrs. Phillips at mphillips@roxbury.org or by calling the school at 973-584-5549 ext. 2504.
