My name is Jamie Caruso and I am pleased to be the School Nurse at Lyncrest School.
I hope to work together with both parents and students to create
a healthy school environment.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 1 million skin cancers are diagnosed each year. More than 90% of all skin cancers are caused by sun exposure. A person’s risk for skin cancer doubles if he/she has had 5 or more sunburns
Protect Yourself from the Sun
Limit your time in the sun, particularly between 10am and 4pm
Use sunscreen on any exposed skin with an SPF of 15 or higher
Use sunscreen (with UVA/UVB protection) even on cloudy days
Sunscreen needs to be reapplied frequently
Wear a wide brim hat and sunglasses with UV protection
If your child is transferring to Lyncrest School, there are certain state requirements for entrance. Please download the following documents and submit them to the health office in the time period specified. Thank you.
1. Health Information Sheet-Please complete this information sheet about your child and return to the health office on their first day (remember to complete both pages)
2. Health Examination Form-Within thirty (30) days of entry every new student must have a current physical examination on file with the health office. The exam must have been completed within 1 year of the date of the first day your child attends a Fair Lawn school.
3. Immunization Form-If your child is transferring from another New Jersey school, complete immunization records must be provided upon or before entry to our school. If you are transferring from out of state or out of country, you have thirty (30) days to present these records to the nurse.
4. Mantoux (PPD) testing
Students transferring from or born in certain countries with a high incidence of tuberculosis as deemed by the state will be required to have a Mantoux (PPD) skin test for tuberculosis prior to entrance. You will be informed by the nurse if this test is necessary.
Your child may be excluded if the Health Examination & Immunization requirements are not met
If you have any concerns regarding your child’s health,
