Happy March!


Our School-wide GERMS Experiment on 2-28-20 was a fun and eye opening experience!  Here is our before and after of the petri dishes (without washing/sanitizer, with sanitizer, and washing with soap & water):

Peace, Love, and Purell

Be Well!

I hope you all are staying healthy and enjoying some learning time at home!

Please let me know if I can help with anything.






If you have an updated physical, please be sure to send it in so that I have the most up-to-date information on your child(ren).  Thank you.  


Current 5th graders will need an updated ("sports" if applicable, otherwise routine form) physical exam AND immunization record with their 6th grade Tdap & Meningococcal vaccines.

Please note, before returning to school, students must be:

-fever free for 24 hours without medication 

-no vomiting for 24 hours


     It is important to notify the school, and myself, about any injuries your child may have sustained during non-school hours... especially if the student will be coming into school wearing a brace, splint, etc. along with any activity restriction(s).  Any activity restriction beyond 2 days requires a note from a physician.  Please be mindful that if a child is being excused from Physical Education (PE), they will also NOT be able to participate in recess.



Please continue to call in absences to the main office @ 201-930-5600 x165.  Sharing the reason for your child’s absence allows us to better keep the community up-to-date of things to contact their pediatrician for. This also allows us to follow illness trends and keep the rest of the school community aware; while maintaining confidentiality.


     If your child has a well visit appointment with their pediatrician, please be sure to request a copy of the physical and exam to update their school health files.  Feel free to send this documentation in with you child, email it to me: NurseBaker@woodcliff-lake.com, or fax to 201-307-8907.

In Good Health,

Nurse Baker
