Welcome to East Brook Elementary School's Health Office. As your certified school nurse, part of my goal is to create a web page to provide you with information that is beneficial.  Another goal is to have open communication where your calls and questions can be answered thereby enhancing my ability to provide the best possible care for your child.

 

About Me!

Most people know that I have been a Registered Certified School Nurse who has proudly completed thirty credits above my Masters. 

I have two sons, Sean 34 and Warren 31 and their wives Jessica and Stephanie who I love dearly.  Steve and I have been happily married for thirty seven years and adore my third "child" Sophie a three year old "active" Beagle. Currently we have become the proud Grandparents of a bouncing boy named Parker!


When your child is absent:
Call the main office at 201 573-6000 ext.2001 and speak to Mrs. Sosa. Please let us know why your child is out.

Notes from physicians and parents:
All notes  about health issues should be brought to the nurse by the student.  If your child sustains a significant injury, such as a concussion or a fracture, please contact me promptly. This will enable me to update the teacher so that we can address the necessary accommodations.

If your child becomes ill or injured at school:

Your child will be assessed and cared for by the school nurse.  In case of minor illness or injury, parents or other designated caregivers may be contacted.  In case of serious illness or injury, we will call "911" and then contact the parents or other designated caregivers.  It is very important that you update your contact information whenever it changes!


Medications:
Medication can only be administered in school if we receive the proper authorizations from parent/physician. Parents must deliver the medication to the health office in the original container.


When should you keep your child home from school?

It is sometimes difficult to determine if a child really needs to stay home and miss school. Here are some guidelines:

 

  • If a child has vomiting or diarrhea..they should stay home for 24 hours.
  • If a child has a fever (100 degrees or higher),  they should stay home for 24 hours after the fever has subsided. Keep in mind that a mildly elevated temperature may be an early indication of illness.
  • If a child has a sore throat with fever and or vomiting, consider a visit to the pediatrician. Students who test positive for strep must stay home until they have taken antibiotics for 24 hours.
  • If a child has a discharge or crusting from the eyes, please consult with your pediatrician.  Students should be discharge free before returning to school.
  • If a child has a bad cold or any other illness that prevents them from being able to focus in the classroom- or might disturb/infect the rest of the class- a day of rest can be very therapeutic. You may prevent a more serious illness by giving your child time to recover.
