Welcome to the Bee Meadow Health Office!

Wendy Busby, RN BSN CSN

Hours 8:30pm - 3:30pm

 

We have had a great start to the school year!  I am happy to be back for my eighteenth year in the district.  Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns regarding your child’s health.  

In order to provide the best possible care for your child, it is important that I know when there has been a change in your child's medical condition.  This may include an ear infection, strep throat, a new allergy, scheduled surgery, or a new medication.  It is also helpful to let me know if there are any social/emotional changes in your family.  Factors at home that often affect children's coping abilities may include a new baby, a sick grandparent, a death, divorces, or other stressors.  Please feel free to call me or stop in at any time and be sure to fill out this annual health update at the beginning of every year.

 
Remember Healthy Children are Better Learners

Sick Days

 
If your child is going to be tardy or absent please call the school absentee number 973-515-2415 or my direct line before 8:30 AM.If we do not receive notification in advance or hear from you that day, we must contact a parent or guardian to account for each child’s absence. This protocol assures school officials and parents that all children are safe and accounted for every day.
Physical Exams

 
All transfer and kindergarten children are required to have a complete physical examination by the family physician before being admitted to school.  Click HERE for the form.
 
Although it is not required, it is highly recommended that your child have a physical exam by your primary care physician at least once during each developmental stage:
  • Early childhood (pre school through grade 3)
  • Pre-adolescence (grades 4-6)
  • Adolescence (grades 7-12)
At the middle school level physical examinations are required for students involved in varsity and intramural sports.  It is recommended that the primary physician perform the physical.  Contact the school for the Sports Physical forms.  If the student does not have a primary care physician then arrangements can be made for the school doctor to do the exam. 
 
Medications

 
Medications will be given by the school nurse only upon receipt of this medication authorization form.  This is required for both over the counter and prescription drugs.  All medication must be in the original container.  And finally, medication must be transported to and from school by an adult.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Screenings

 
During the year the school nurse performs the following health services:
  • Measurement of height and weight and BMI
  • Vision and hearing testing
  • Scoliosis screening of 4th and 5th grade students
  • Blood Pressure screenings of all students
