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.

In light of the CDC Health Advisory, and related telebriefing, that came out re: the drifted influenza A viruses that are NOT included in the current influenza vaccine, here are important key flu messages:

  • While the flu vaccine this year may not protect against the drifted H3N2 viruses, it does protect against 3 other viruses that are also circulating.  The vaccine remains the most important way to prevent influenza.
  •  To reduce the severity and length of influenza, please go to your healthcare provider as soon as flu symptoms present to obtain a prescription for antiviral medication. Antiviral treatment this year is very important to reduce the risk of complications from the flu.  
  • To reduce the spreasd of flu, respiratory etiquette is very important.  Please stay home if ill.
The 4 Principles of Hand Awareness:
1. WASH your hands when they are dirty and BEFORE eating.
2. DO NOT cough into your hands.
3. DO NOT sneeze into your hands.
4. Above all, DO NOT put your fingers into your eyes, nose, or mouth.

Dear Pre-K Parents/Guardians:

Please be aware, children who are 6 through 59 months of age and attending licensed child care and preschool facilities in New Jersey are required to have flu vaccine by December 31 of each year. Students who do not receive the vaccine by December 31st will be excluded from school for the duration of the influenza season (through March 31st) or until they receive at least one dose of the influenza vaccine.  

Even healthy kids of any age can get seriously sick from the flu, and they can spread it to others. Don't delay, get vaccinated today!
