Nurse
Welcome to the Nursing Office Page! My name is Rose Sachedina and I am  the Registered Nurse here at Smith, I am committed to keeping our students safe, well, and happy!  The children come to my office for wellness screenings, illness evaluations and First Aid. Please feel free to contact me Monday – Friday from 8:30 to 3:10 with any concerns or questions you may have.  I am happy to hear from you!  Please contact me at 201-816-7718 &/or ssachedina@tenafly.k12.nj.us
 
TO REPORT AN ABSENCE: Please call the Nursing Office to report your child's absence.  When possible, please call prior to the start of the school day and leave a message stating your child's name, the date, teacher, and the reason for their absence.  E-mail reports are also acceptable with the same information no later than 9:00 am. Each time a child is absent, it should be reported.  Calling to report an absence is  essential to ensure your child is safe at home and adequate communication is kept between guardians and the school. 

HEALTH SCREENINGS: Health screenings will be conducted throughout the school year.  Please inform me in writing by September 22 if you do not wish for your child to be screened.  If your child is unable to pass the screening, a referral will be sent home.  

MEDICATIONS: As per Tenafly Board of Education Policy, both prescription and over the counter medications require both physician and parental consent prior to distribution in school.  Medications must be brought to the Nursing Office in the original label, not expired, and with the proper paper work.  Please refer to the medication policy file for further information from our district physician. 

ORTHOPEDIC INJURIES: If your child is injured and requires any type of assistive devices or physical education/recess restriction, a doctor's note must be brought to the Nursing Office describing how long the restriction/device is necessary, if the student can or cannot bear weight and any other relevant information. 

WHEN TO KEEP YOUR CHILD HOME:  In order to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all of the children in our Smith Community, we ask that your child be kept home if they are exhibiting certain symptoms:
-A fever over 100.0 degrees, controlled without a fever reducer. Students must be fever free for 24 hours prior to returning to school.
-Any vomiting or diarrhea during the night or morning before.
-Draining, crusty, red or itchy eyes .
-Any undiagnosed rash should be evaluated by your physician.
-Students should be kept home for 24 hours after the beginning of antibiotic therapy. 
-Students  should stay home if too uncomfortable to complete work due to cold.
-Students  should stay home if have a severe cough.
