Important Notes about our return to Hybrid instruction in Spring 2021 


  • The deadline for all medical paperwork and medication is April 12. Nurse Monya also needs to be informed of any new conditions (Example: an injury that requires the use of crutches at school or a new allergy.)

  • All families need to have on file: A standard or sport physical from the past 12 months by the child’s doctor, a Child Safety Form, and a Health History Form.

  • If your student has allergies - you also need to fill out the Food or Allergy Action Plan. If your student has asthma, you need the asthma treatment plan. If your student takes medication at school, there is the prescription medication form.

  • If your child has had a health Care Plan at School for any reason (ex: Asthma, Food Allergies, Seizure condition, Endocrine condition, etc) and you haven't yet submitted it this school year, you will need to submit this to Nurse Monya, along with any medication the doctor ordered for the Care Plan--for your child to attend the Hybrid program. The medication needs to have an expiration date later than June 1, 2021. 

If you have any questions about medical forms, please contact Nurse Monya directly at mmccarty@lccsnj.org. 


Email is the best way to send forms. They can be emailed to mmccarty@lccsnj.org, faxed to 201 332-4981, mailed to the school at 2495 Kennedy Boulevard, Jersey City, NJ 07304 or dropped off during school hours - Monday-Friday 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. (closed for lunch 12:15-1 p.m.) 




A few notes, as of Sept. 2020: 


  • While under Distance Learning, the NJ Dept. of Health, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and our school nurse urge that all students remain on the standard vaccination schedule. This includes all incoming 6th Graders, who must have Tdap and Meningococcal shots. If your child is not yet 11, the deadline is 30 days after their 11th birthday. It also includes all PreK students who will still be age 4 on Dec 31, 2020 must also have a Fall Flu Vaccine. The window to receive it is Sept 1-Dec 31, 2020 but Oct-Nov is recommended.
  • ALL students and families are urged to get a Flu Vaccine this Fall to reduce flu that may mimic or worsen Covid-19. October-November is ideal to allow antibodies to develop and avoid shortages. Even if your family is affected by flu, it's often milder if you've received a flu vaccine
  •  Being up to date not only prevents illness, it means your student is ready to attend if we can reopen. 

Vaccination records should be submitted to Nurse Monya: mmccarty@lccsnj.org
