Parent Information & Training

As a parent, you wear many hats. You’re a researcher finding out more about your child’s learning and thinking differences. You’re a teacher helping your child learn new things. You’re an advocate pushing to get your child the assistance s/he needs.  You may have a lot of questions about how to navigate the educational system or where to go to find legal, medical or other help for your child. This page is intended to lend a hand. Scroll down – various information flows top to bottom of the page.

2023/2024 School Year

Dear Parent (s)/Legal Guardian (s):

Warren Glen Academy requires a parent/guardian of a student who is absent to notify the school of the absence. Please do so by notifying the school nurse who will document the absence. I, the school nurse, will be calling the parent/guardian of an absent student if I do not receive a phone call notifying me of the absence. When calling, if you do not speak directly to me, please leave your child’s name and date of absence. I would appreciate it also if you would leave a reason for the absence. By doing so, I am able to see if there is a trend of a type of illness that is going around the school. If you are kind enough to leave me a reason for the absence, it will be documented in the attendance record.

Please note that for your convenience, you may leave me a message regarding an absence or any other medical issue on my voice mail at any time. You do not need to wait until school opens in the morning. All messages left are confidential. When you call the school number and a recording begins, you may press #3 or extension 109 to reach my office. You do not need to listen to the complete message. Please remember to report absences to me since I am the person who calls to confirm absences if I do not receive a message. I will be glad to inform your child’s teacher that you notified the school. If you know in advance that your child will be absent for an appointment etc. you may call ahead and inform me, I will note on my calendar, and you will not need to recall the day of the appointment.

If your child is seen by a physician, remember to ask for an excuse from school; the note will be filed in your child’s medical file. Often school districts ask to see a student’s attendance record, if I have any physician notes available, I make the school district aware. . * Physician’s note is required to return to school if absent three or more days.

A few reminders:
Please keep me updated regarding any medication changes made throughout the year for your child, even if I do not administer the medication in school. This permits me to better assess a child if they come to the health office with symptoms that may be attributed to a side effect of a new medication. It also allows me to have current information in case of an emergency and the need arises that your child is sent to the hospital. It is important that the hospital is aware of medications taken. Although you will be notified immediately of your child’s need to be hospitalized, this information will help medical personnel to begin the evaluation immediately.

****It is extremely important to contact the school with any change in address or phone numbers. If you have a cell phone available, please notify us of the number, and also try to include an emergency contact person that is available during the day at home or cell phone number that you provide for them.

Some students will require a physical examination to attend school this year. If your child is one of these students, a physical form will be mailed to you separate from this packet. Please have the physical examination form completed and returned to school before or no later than the month of September. If you have a physical examination scheduled for your child and would like a form, please feel free to contact me and I will send a form home to you. It is always helpful to have current medical information in a student’s medical file.

As always, thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns now or throughout the school year, please feel free to contact me at 908-995-1999 #3. If I am with a student, leave me a message, I will return your call.

Thank you,

School Nurse
