Health Office

Hello and welcome to Lacordaire Academy's Health Office page!  Your childrens' health and safety are important to me and I want to provide the environment for healthy learning and promote wellness to our students.

The School Nurse serves as a liason between family, school personnel and health care providers.  Asthma, severe food allergy, bee allergy, physical limitations or the need to take medication during the school day are just a few of the reasons to contact me.  Please make sure we have current phone numbers on file in the event we need to reach you in an emergency.

 My office hours are Monday through Friday from 9:30 AM until 2:30 PM. Please feel free to contact me regarding any special or health needs concerning your child.

Dear Lacordaire Academy Families and Staff,
A number of states, including New Jersey, have reported cases of Enterovirus EV-D68, a respiratory illness. While EV-D68 is not a new virus, it is uncommon. As many parents have been hearing reports of the virus on the news and via social media, Lacordaire Academy would like to share this information from the Center for Disease Control and the New Jersey Department of Health. 

Keep your child home if he/she feels sick. Children with a fever of 100 degrees or over must stay home until they are fever-free and asymptomatic for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication. It is important that asthma is well-treated and controlled.  
Consult your child’s primary healthcare provider for further guidance.

Our School Nurse and Administrators are in communication with the Montclair Health Department. We are conducting ongoing surveillance, and will discuss any clusters of illness seen in our school with local officials. 
We will notify parents/guardians with any concerns that may arise.
Please contact your child’s school nurse with any questions or concerns you may have.

Please refer to the following websites for the most up-to-date information:
