My name is Sheila Piscetta and I am the school nurse at Ridgefield Park Junior-Senior High School. If there is a health concern or you need to speak to me directly, my number is 201 807-2654. If your child is absent please call the Main Office at 201 440-1440. Students who return to school with a doctor’s note after an illness or injury will have those absences excused.
The health and safety of every student enrolled in this school is very important to me. For this reason, physicals are strongly recommended for all students in eighth and eleventh grades. Vision, dental hearing, and scoliosis screenings are performed as recommended by the State. Blood pressure monitoring is also done. Students participating in athletics must have a physical each year in order to participate. Medication cannot be dispensed to a student unless I have an up-to-date doctor’s note prescribing the medication and a note from the parent giving me permission to administer. This includes over-the-counter medications such as an Advil and Tylenol.
I look forward to having a successful and healthy school year and carefully monitoring the well being of the student body.
