Superintendent of Millburn Township Schools Update

Dr. Christine Burton

The groundhog saw his shadow yesterday, so we all know what that means – winter is here and continuing for at least six more weeks. (Funny how that works!!) That prediction can usually mean a longer cold and flu season. Our nurses would like to remind you of the best way to encourage your children to stay healthy – it’s all about handwashing!! We also want to remind you of our procedures should your children get sick this season:
Your child needs to stay home for a fever above 100.  Students must be fever- free without the use of any fever-reducing medication (Tylenol or Advil) for 24 hours before returning to school. 

Children who have exhibited symptoms of stomach flu should be kept home until they are symptom-free for 24 hours and are tolerating food well.
If your child has been diagnosed with strep throat or pink eye, they must be kept home until they have been on the prescribed medication for 24 hours before returning to school. 
In the event your child becomes sick at school and needs to be picked up, we request that you arrive as soon as possible or within one hour of the call. If you are unavailable, your emergency contact person will be called to pick up your child.
Thank you for helping keep all our children, and staff, healthy!
Speaking of health, we hope you have marked your calendar to attend the school district’s Health & Wellness Community Forum , on Wednesday, February 15 at 7 pm at Hartshorn School. Please join us to share your insights on this important initiative. Please click the RSVP link here, so we have an idea of the number of attendees for planning purposes. Walk-ins welcome if you can’t commit now.
Happy Super Bowl weekend!
