Welcome to Marlboro Middle School. The nurses’ offices are located DOWN THE HALL PAST THE MAIN OFFICE. We are available to students throughout the school day and during afterschool activities until 4:30 pm.
All Health and Sports Forms are available on the Marlboro Middle School Website (see main page)
6th Grade Vaccines: All incoming 6th grade students who are 11 years old are required to receive the Tdap and Meningococcal vaccinations. Medical documentation of vaccination is due prior to the first day of school. Students who turn 11 after the first day of school must provide proof of vaccination within one week of their 11th birthday. Medical documentation of vaccination is necessary to avoid exclusion from school.
Illness: If your child becomes ill, please keep him/her home until he/she is free of symptoms without medication for 24 hours. Symptoms include fever of 100.0F or higher, vomiting, diarrhea and conjunctivitis ("pink eye"). We are not able to release students to anyone other than a legal guardian without written permission from the parent/guardian. Remember to call the attendance line each day of absence/illness at 732-972-2100 x6717.
School Sports: All school sports, including intramurals, require a Sports Physical. The Sports Physical is valid for one year from the exam date and must be completed on the Sports Physical form available on the Middle School website. The Sports Physical is completed by both the parent/guardian (Part A) and the physician (Part B) and must be current to attend try-outs. Please be aware of the Sports Physical deadline! Announcements are made daily and an email sent home well in advance of each season’s deadline. Information is also available on the school website. Paperwork submitted after the deadline will be held for the next sports season. It is the responsibility of the student and parent to be in compliance.
Medications: Please advise us of any medication being taken by your child. No medication can be given at school without a doctor’s order. This includes prescription and over-the-counter medication. Under certain conditions, students may be permitted to self-medicate as indicated by their physician. This self-administration is limited to inhalers and Epi-Pens and requires a signed parental waiver and MD approval. Students are not permitted to carry and self-administer any other medications at school.
Allergies: An Allergy Action Plan is required for students with allergies. Students with peanut and nut allergies must have a parental waiver AND physician order to leave the nut-free table at lunch. A child with a nut allergy will automatically be placed at the nut-free table until the physician order is received and approved by the Administrative Offices. Please refer to the Marlboro Middle School/School Nursewebsite for more information and forms.
If your child uses an Epipen, please fill out a designee waiver. With your permission, the school will assign trained designees to administer an epipen in the event of an anaphylactic reaction if a nurse or parent is unavailable. This is particularly important for trips and after school activities.
Annual Screenings: Height, weight, vision, hearing, blood pressure and scoliosis are conducted annually according to a schedule set by the State of New Jersey.
Gym Excuses, Elevator Passes, and Crutches: Students requiring excuses from physical education or elevator passes should report to the school nurse. Unless we receive a written order from a medical doctor, we are able to issue a one-day pass. A physician’s note is required if the student is to be excused for a longer period of time. A doctor’s order is required to use crutches at school. If a student arrives at school on crutches without a doctor’s order, the parent will be called to take the student home. The affected foot must be protected by a cast shoe or similar secure (not backless) footwear. Flip flops are not allowed in school. A cast shoe will protect the affected foot and closes easily with velco. Please consult your doctor.
Please include your child’s full name and grade on all forms and notes.
