COVID Update from the School Nurse for Healthy School Environment:
The number of weekly positive COVID tests remains elevated. As a result, we continue to count on the adults at home to limit the spread of COVID at school..
It is critical that parents screen their children at home and keep children who are sick at home. When in doubt please keep your child at home & consult with your medical provider and school nurse. Leave a message on the attendance line: 609.298.3900 ext. 2029.
We are still following the Burlington County Health Guidelines for COVID & illness:
COVID-19 Compatible SICK Symptoms that indicate school absence and a COVID Test
• At least one of the following symptoms: new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, new loss of taste and/or smell OR
• At least two of the following symptoms: fever, chills, shivers, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, congestion, or runny nose
Students who come to school with a combination of these symptoms will be sent home by the school nurse and require a lab negative COVID test before they can return to school.
The Health Department does not allow negative home tests as clearance due to a margin of error resulting in false positives, but we can accept POSITIVE Home tests.
Regardless of your vaccination status, if you are symptomatic and have tested positive for COVID-19, then you must isolate for 5 days from the date your symptoms began. If your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can end isolation, but you should wear a mask around others for 5 additional days, avoid travel if possible, and avoid places where you can't wear a mask like a restaurant.

Clinical Corner Spotlight:
As the nation faces a deepening youth mental health crisis, NJHA has developed a new resource designed to help parents navigate what all too often becomes a confusing and complex mental health system of care. This information sheet aims to get families started on their journey to assistance, starting with the fundamental questions: What should I do? Where can I turn? What should I do? (link) is a PDF parent resource which provides contacts and links to initiate mental health support for children, including key information on identifying a crisis and when to call 911. It also provides parents with resources to be engaged in their children’s care and recovery. It’s also available at https://www.njha.com/quality-patient-safety/mental-health-and-substance-use-disorder/mental-health/parent-resources/
