Welcome to the home page for the health offices at Montclair High School and the Ninth Grade Academy.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding health concerns.

For freshmen, please call the school office at 973-509-4004;, for grades 10, 11 and 12; call the attendance office at 973-509-6413. Please include a reason for the absence and the estimated time your child will be out.
Medications cannot be given in school without written permission of the student’s doctor and parent/guardian. All medication forms can be accessed as noted above.
Health Status Changes
We are here to help. Please communicate any health status changes or injuries so that accommodations can be made if necessary. Please inform the health office of any change in medication or allergy status.
Allergy and Asthma
Please provide the appropriate documentation for allergies and asthma treatment. The forms can be obtained as noted above. This will assist in providing quick and effective treatment for your child as needed. As with all medications, physician and parent/guardian permission is required. These forms will be necessary for any athletic participation.
Students are screened as per the N.J. Department of Education guidelines. If you wish your student to be privately screened for scoliosis, please submit written notice.
Physicals are not required unless you are entering the Montclair School District from anther district. Physicals are required for any athletic participation in high school. The physical must be current and completed on the N.J. State Pre-Participation form as noted. This form may be accessed through the form link. Additional information specific to athletics is available on the MHS athletic page.
Many trips to the Health Office – and time spent out of class – are due to hunger and fatigue. It is very hard for your student to perform at their best if they are tired or hungry. Please encourage healthy eating and sleeping habits. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
