  • Coxsackie Virus Information from Nurse Jill

    Several cases of head, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) have been reported at both Pequannock and Kinnelon High Schools. Unusual, because this illness is generally seen in the preschool and young elementary school
    population. This name sounds pretty scary, but it is the term that describes a mild illness caused by the coxsackie virus. Most contagious in the first week of infection, the virus is spread primarily through coughs and sneezes or through contact with unclean hands or surfaces contacted by individuals who have the virus. Symptoms include fever, reduced appetite, and sore throat. After fever, individuals often develop painful sores in the back of the throat and on the palms of hands and soles of feet (hence the name HFMD)

  • Medical Forms for the 2016-2017 School Year

    As school winds down, just wanted to remind you of the dreaded yet required medical paperwork that needs to be completed and returned prior to the start of the school year.

  • For 5th Grade Parents

    Congratulations on another milestone, your child’s LEAD graduation.

    This week your child will be bringing home a note outlining vaccine requirements for 6th grade.  If your child has had these immunizations and you have already sent in documentation there is no need to act.  Otherwise, documentation is due before September or within 30 days of your child’s 11th birthday if he/she has a Sept-December 2005 birthdate.

  • Returning to School After Being Sick

    Thank you for your questions at last week’s Home School Meeting concerning when to keep your child home. A fever is considered 100 degrees or higher, your child can return to school when his/her fever has been gone for 24 hours without medication (eg. Tylenol, Advil, etc.)

  • Basketball Info From Nurse Jill

    If your child is interested in being on the Holy Spirit Basketball team, please download the state history and physical forms needed to participate. As in the past, annual physicals are required, and if the date the actual physical was performed is greater than 90 days prior to the first basketball practice, the health update form must also be completed by you and your child. I also have hard copies of these forms in my office.

  • Updated Holy Spirit Healthcare Guidelines

    Good attendance is valued by all of us, and we hope that this school year is a healthy one for our children. There are some occasions, however, when children need to stay home from school. Here are some guidelines that are designed to protect the health and safety of all of our children and staff members.

  • Medical Forms for the 2015 – 2016 School Year

    As school winds down, just wanted to remind you of the dreaded yet required medical paperwork that needs to be completed and returned prior to the start of the school year.

  • Outdoor Recess Reminder

    Just a reminder: now that the thermometer is registering above freezing (at least by mid-day), the children in grades K thru 8 will be going out for recess. Please send your children in with jackets or more than one sweatshirt (two layers) as days are still brisk.

  • Gentle Reminders
