Health Regulations In accordance with State regulations, South Brunswick School District requires pupils new to the District, students entering Kindergarten, students trying out for athletic teams, students participating in Color Guard, marching band or dance and those applying for working papers to undergo a physical examination. Physical examinations are strongly recommended for students in grades 5 and 8. Examinations must be completed by a private physician. In the absence of a private physician, parents are encouraged to speak with the school nurse.

The school nurse can administer medication that is packaged in the original container and is accompanied by the District's Medication Form, which must be completed and signed by the child's doctor and parent or guardian. Forms can be obtained through your school nurse or by visiting the District's Web site.

In addition, each year the school nurse conducts the following screenings:
  • Height and Weight - All Grades
  • Blood Pressure - Grades K, 3, 5, 6-12
  • Vision - Grades K, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10
  • Hearing - Grades K-4, 6, 8 and 10
  • Scoliosis - Grades 5, 7, 9 and 11
  • Mantoux screening as per current State guidelines.

As our community here at Indian Fields continues to grow, we have many students and faculty that suffer from asthma and allergies related to various items. One such important item is food allergies.    It is imperative that all families play in active role in minimizing our community to over exposure.  We encourage all students to minimize the sharing of foods, and wash their hands frequently at school for the health and safety of everyone.

It is the responsibility of the school to administer first aid treatment to all reported injuries occurring in school, on the playground, or in the school bus. It is the responsibility of the parents/guardians to care for the injury after the first aid treatment has been administered by the school.

The school nurse is available at the schools for health consultations. The nurse never makes a diagnosis, nor can she prescribe treatment. If you are not familiar with the community resources for proper medical attention, she will be able to assist you.
