**IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE NJDOH and CDC**
If you are sick stay home. Parents, please be advised to contact your health care provider for recommendations if you or your children have symptoms of or exposure to COVID-19. Stable symptomatic and asymptomatic patients do not need to go to hospitals or urgent care centers for testing. We need to promote the message that testing will not change the treatment outcome for stable patients and that discussion needs to take place with your health care provider.

THE DEFINITION OF SCHOOL NURSING

"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and lifelong achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to natural development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning."
