Current guidelines as to when to stay home 


In order to continue to keep our school community healthy during this time of increased COVID-19 cases which have moved our region into a High Risk category on the Regional Risk Matrix, the NJ Department of Health has updated the guidance concerning when students and staff need to stay home. Please read through these important guideline changes.


Current guidelines as to when to stay home

 If you have COVID-19 Compatible Symptoms*, then you need to stay home for at least 10 days from the start of symptoms, and at least 24 hours past fever, and improvement of symptoms, or until you have received a negative COVID-19 test.  Evidence of an alternate diagnosis alone from your doctor is no longer acceptable. 

If someone in your household is COVID-19 positive, or has COVID-19 Compatible Symptoms* they should be isolated from the rest of the household.  You will need to quarantine for 14 days from your last contact to that person or until they receive a negative COVID-19 test. 

Previously the nurses initiated contact tracing within the school community for known COVID-19 positive cases.  Under the new guidance, we will be performing contact tracing on any individual who has attended school, and has either tested positive for COVID-19, or displays COVID-19 Compatible Symptoms* and has not yet received testing. 

*COVID-19 symptoms are determined using the following chart.  Any 2 symptoms from column A or 1 symptom from Column B are considered to be COVID Compatible Symptoms.


Column A Column B


  Fever



Cough


  Chills



Shortness of Breath


  Shivering



Difficulty Breathing


  Muscle Aches



New loss of smell


  Headache



  New loss of taste


  Sore Throat





  Nausea or Vomiting





  Diarrhea





  Fatigue





  Congestion or runny nose

Sports Physicals

Any student who plans on participating in a sport mut have a current physical on file in the health office. If your physical is more that 90 days old you will need to submit a health update form prior to the start of your season. The school doctor will be here every Wednesday if you do not have a primary doctor. If you want to see the school doctor you may sign up School Doctor Appointments

Summer Sports Physicals

Summer Sports Physicals

June 16th and 17th 2021

 Dear Parents/Guardians:

If your child needs a physical exam for summer sports clearance, they could receive one here at West Morris Central on Wednesday, June 16th, or Thursday, June 17th at West Morris Mendham.  The schedule is listed below, and is the same for both schools.  A physical exam is required for each school year for sports and summer weight room participation. Physicals are good for one year from the date they are completed. If using a physical that is more than 90 days old you must also submit a health update form in addition to a copy of that physical.  All forms can be found Here To book an appointment for West Morris Central, follow this link: Summer Sports Physicals If you need to go to WMM please notify the school nurse so your medical records can be brought there for the day of physical. 

No student will be allowed to weight train without a new physical or a health history update form submitted to the nurse by June 30th.  Late forms will be processed periodically during the summer as the nurse’s hours are limited.

If you prefer, your own physician may perform the physical exam, but the state mandated sports physical forms must be completed, signed and stamped by your physician.  The completed forms must be returned to the nurses’ office before the student can participate in any practice.  Do not give the forms to the coach.  The school doctor must review and countersign all forms before a student is cleared to practice.

Please note that no student will be examined without the entire medical history portion of the physical form filled out and signed by a parent/guardian prior to the exam.  You will also need to be registered on the RSchool Registration Site and 9th and 11th grade athletes will need to have completed their online ImPact test. Any student who has had a recent injury or illness must bring a physician’s note of clearance.If you have asthma, allergies or diabetes a new plan of care will need to be submitted as well.
