Dear SVMS Parents,
Every child in grades K-8th Is required to have an Annual Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Examination done by their physician. This exam certifies that the student is cleared to participate in sports at our school as well as physical education classes during the school year. In addition, please provide a copy of your child’s most recent vaccination record.
It may be that your child has in fact had his/her yearly exam, but the forms were either not completed or not sent to me. If your child had an exam before the end of the school year or during the summer and you provided the forms to school already either last school year or during the summer, you only need to fill out the Health History Update Questionnaire. In addition if you wish your child to have any medications such as Tylenol or motrin you will need to fill out the Mandatory Medication Form. This form will need to be filled out if your child takes regular prescription medications as well. This form requires both your signature as well as your child’s physicians signature.
If your child has Food Allergies, the FARE form will need to be filled out by your child’s physician and you will need to provide the required medications prescribed for your child including your child’s epi-pen. If your child has asthma and requires an inhaler, then the Asthma Treatment Plan must be filled out by your child’s physician and you will need to provide me with their prescribed inhaler. These forms are required by the state to be filled out annually and the epi-pens and inhalers need to be replaced annually as well. I will return your child’s expired epi-pen and/or inhalers and other medications to you once you provide me with the new medications. All of these forms and the additional forms that need to be completed for their health record, can be found on the school website under the “Nursing” tab. Please be sure to fill out all necessary forms.
Once again these forms are necessary so that your child will be in compliance with the New Jersey Department of Education regulations. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you in advance for your prompt response to this matter.
