Health Office

Welcome to the Health Office 

 

The health office is open Monday through Friday during school hours. We are always available by phone or email if you have any health concerns you would like to discuss. Below are several commonly used health forms posted for your convenience. These include sports physicals, asthma, allergy, and medication request forms that all must be filled out by a physician annually if applicable.  Please review our “remain at home” checklist, which includes our new COVID guidelines.  

 

We have been following the Paramus Catholic reopening plan and keeping up to date with all the NJDOE and CDC requirements. Our nurses have completed the Johns Hopkins tracing course and communicate regularly with the Paramus Board of Health. Students were all instructed on the COVID questionnaire, social distancing, proper hand hygiene, and applying and removing masks correctlyKelly Sietsma will mediate the temperature screening daily and we will work with the faculty and staff to maintain a safe environment at school.   

 

Thank you!
