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, www.sbschools.org.

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.

Immunizations
Immunization Information & Requirements
Immunizations are required for entry into school to comply with Chapter 14 of the New Jersey Sanitary Code. They include diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, measles, rubella, mumps, polio, varicella and Hepatitis B vaccines.

Failure to provide a complete immunization record can result in the child's exclusion from school. The school nurse reviews all immunization records prior to a student's admission. Parents or guardians are encouraged to contact the school health office to speak about an individual child's immunization needs.

Immunization waivers are honored for health or religious reasons when proper written documentation is shared with the school nurse.
