Saint John vianney Health Office

Saint John Vianney High School, Holmdel, NJ is committed to preserving the health and well-being of all students and staff members. Our school health office is available to students while on campus and establishes protocols to promote well-being throughout the learning community. Please review our current policies carefully so that we may maintain a healthier student body.

Sick Student Protocol

We understand that your child’s education is a top priority. However, our school health office urgently requests that you keep your child home if he or she is ill. Doing so helps prevent the spread of illness among fellow students, staff, and instructors.

If your child will miss school due to illness, please call our attendance office at 732-739-0800 x124 to report their absence. When a doctor’s visit is necessary, we ask that you request a note from the child’s physician. Students may bring notes to the attendance office when they are well enough to resume classes.

State Immunization Requirements

The potential for infectious disease spread is present in every group setting. To protect against the most serious health risks, the state of New Jersey imposes several requirements for student immunization. Barring any medical exemptions, students must receive a series of immunizations before school attendance. These required immunizations include:

  • DTaP (Diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis)
  • IPV (Inactivated polio vaccine)
  • MMR (Measles, mumps, and rubella)
  • Varicella (Chickenpox)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningococcal
  • Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis)

Proof of immunization must be presented before the first day of school. No student will be admitted until their required immunizations are up-to-date and on record.

If your child cannot receive immunizations due to medical reasons, their physician or an advanced practice nurse may submit a written statement explaining which immunizations should not be administered, the period for which they should be avoided, and the medical reasons they are not recommended. Please note that exemptions based on philosophical, moral, secular, or general preferences are not accepted as valid.

Student Physicals

All parents must provide documentation that states students have received a current physical examination from their physician. These exams provide us with accurate health records and help ensure your child is up-to-date on all necessary immunizations and other health needs. We request that parents schedule and complete a physical for all children who will attend Saint John Vianney High School and forward the exam records to our school health office before enrollment.

Please note that we are unable to admit any student until his or her forms are complete and up-to-date.

Asthma and Allergy Resources

If your child must use an inhaler or suffers from severe allergies, please fill out and return the appropriate forms below to the school nurse:

Both forms provide our school health office with information about the medications that should be administered, who will administer them, and which triggers and symptoms may require their use.

Please make sure that all submitted forms include both parent and physician signatures, as well as the physician’s stamp. These forms may be submitted with a student’s immunization and physical exam records.
