Nursing & Health Services

Welcome to our Health & Nursing Services page at Howell Middle School North!

There is at least one school nurse assigned to our MSN Health Office during regular school hours.  A district nurse is available for after-school activities.

  • Medications require a written physician's order and parental consent to be dispensed by a nurse at school.  This includes over-the-counter medications.
  • Please advise the school nurse if your student has any health problems, life threatening allergies, or medical care needs at school, or if your student is taking any medication at home. 


NJ is seeing an increase in flu activity. Receiving the flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu. Hand washing helps prevent the spread of flu. We encourage frequent hand washing at Middle School North and ask that you reinforce this at home. 

Please remember that students must be fever free WITHOUT MEDICATION for 24 hours before returning to school.

If your student was diagnosed with the flu we ask that you state this when calling the attendance line to help keep MSN a healthy place to learn.
