WELCOME BACK to SCHOOL for the 2017-1018 SCHOOL YEAR.

I hope everyone had a restful and healthy summer. I am anxious to start a new school year and am looking forward to seeing last year's students and meeting all our new students.

In compliance with the laws and guidelines of the State of New Jersey, all new entrants into the Lodi Public School District must present documentation of Immunizations and a physical performed in the last 12 months.

Lodi public school shall admit students on a provisional basis if a physician or his or her designee can document that at least one dose of each required age-appropriate vaccine or antigen has been administered and that the pupil is in the process of receiving the remaining immunizations, as per the Lodi Board of education regulation No. 5320.

Immunization requirements for children to attend schools in New Jersey, both public and private, are established by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services (NJDHSS).

ATTENTION 6th GRADE STUDENTS:

The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services has revised immunization requirements for all children born on or after January 1, 1997 and entering or attending the 6th grade to the following;

Each child needs to receive a Diphtheria, tetanus toxoids and pertussis vaccine (Tdap) and a Meningococcal vaccine

The law states that:

(h) Every child born on or after January 1, 1997 and entering or attending Grade Six, shall have received one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, aceullular pertussis) given no earlier than the 1oth birthday and one dose of a meningococcal containing vaccine (i) Children entering or attending Grade Six on or after September 1, 2008, who received a Td booster dose less than five years prior to entry or attendance shall not be required to receive a Tdap dose until five years have elapsed from the last DTP/DTaP or Td dose.

(j) Children born on or after January 1, 1997, and transferring into a New Jersey school from another state or country after September 1, 2008, shall have received one does of Tdap, provided at least five years have elapsed from the last documented Td dose and one dose of meningococcal vaccine.

If your child is sick:

In the case your child is sick please keep them home if they have a fever, vomiting or diarrhea for at least 24 hours after they no longer have symptoms. This helps reduce the infection rate at school.

See your family doctor if symptoms do not improve after a reasonable amount of time with over the counter treatments.

Health Forms:

Resources are available to the left side of this page for any medical concerns your student might have such as medication at school and physical paperwork. Any questions please call the office during school hours or email me at the above address.
