All incoming 7th grade students need to complete medical forms. Please see "FORMS" below for details.
Dear Parents and Students,
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to W. R. Satz School. I hope everyone had a happy and healthy summer. I look forward to a great school year. I have compiled a few health related issues that will help you navigate through school.
If you have any specific health concerns pertaining to your child, please give me a call at 732-946-1808 ext. 3434 or visit my website at www.holmdelschools.org, Satz School, Nurse’s Office, for forms and more specific information.
We have made a slight change in the required forms for entering Satz School with the hope of saving parents time. This new change will help streamline paperwork for all new to the district, and incoming 7th grade students. The Confidential Health Appraisal and Health Examination Form for New Students will be replaced with the Physical Examination Form and the History Form. These two forms are components of the Sports Physical Packet. In addition, please ask the doctor to provide the school with a list of your child’s current immunizations.
If your child intends to participate in any school sport, he/she must visit Holmdel's Athletic Department's website and create an account in order to register for any sport. Make sure to download the Sports Packet on the home page. The Sports Physical must be completed by a physician and the History Form by a parent/guardian. These 4 pages must then be uploaded to the athletes' account. An e-mail will be sent to the nurse informing her that your child would like to participate in a sport and she will then review all of the information. The parent/guardian will then get an e-mail informing them their child has been cleared or something is missing, or needs review. Please keep in mind you must update Step #6 with each new sport your child chooses to try-out for and Physicals are only good for 1 year from the date the physician actually performed the examination.
State regulations prohibit school nurses from administering any unauthorized medication to your child. This includes over the counter cough medicines, antacids, Tylenol, Advil, essential oils and topical ointments. Students are not permitted to carry or self-administer any medication unless it is authorized by their physician and is for a life-threatening illness. If you anticipate your child needing medication during the school day, please visit my website and download a Food Allergy Action Form, Asthma Action Plan, or Authorization for Medication to be taken during school hours. Section A should be completed by the parent and Section B needs to be completed, signed and stamped by the physician. The medication needs to be given to the school nurse along with the completed form. All over-the-counter medications need to be in their original unopened containers and prescription medications should be labeled with the student’s name, correct medication, dosage, and administration time.
If your child is sick, please keep them home 24 hours after their symptoms have resolved and their fever is lower than 100 degrees without fever reducing medication, i.e. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Advil (Ibuprofen). Even if your child tells you “I’m fine” or “I have to take a test”, do not allow him/her to return to school. Returning to school sick only exposes others to the illness and continues the cycle.
Once again, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the above number.
Together we can make it a great year!
