New Students

Pre-School, Kindergarten and Transfers

 Parents of all incoming students must provide the Health Office with the following documents:

  • A current medical examination form completed, signed and dated by your child's pediatrician. Incomplete forms will not be accepted!  The physical must have been performed within 365 days of the first day of school.

Students who do not have a complete medical record may be subject to exclusion from school until all documents have been submitted and reviewed.

If your child has any special medical needs while at school, or if you have any questions or concerns about these documents, please be sure to contact Mrs. Hirsch at 201-358-4006, ext. 3020.

Tips for a successful transition

  • Have your child go to bed early for several nights before the first day of school, to get them into a routine and be well rested.
  • Visit the school and the classroom the day before school begins.
  • Be sure they eat a good breakfast before school every day.
  • Every student has snack every day at about 10:00 a.m. Be sure to send a healthy snack, such as a piece of fruit.
  • Please be sure to provide your child with a healthy lunch. No soda or candy, limit sweets and chips.
  • If you ordered lunch for your child, please be sure to tell them what to expect.
  • Have your child dress appropriately for school and the weather. No flip-flops or spaghetti strap tops. Sneakers are safest for recess and required for gym.
  • PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE label your child's clothes and belongings with their name, so if they are lost, they can be returned.
  • When the weather is warm, send your child with a water bottle clearly labeled with their name.
  • Teach your child the importance of proper hand washing and covering their nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing.
  • Remember to relax, your children are in very good hands. WE will take very good care of them!
