Immunization Records

The State of New Jersey requires certain immunizations be up to date before a child may attend school.  These requirements apply to both domestic and international students.  These records must be submitted through the Magnus System in English or with full translation provided.

Health Insurance

All resident students are required to have health insurance so we can take care of your student while s/he is on campus. 

If your student is a U.S. citizen, you are required to provide a copy of the front and back of their insurance card as proof of insurance coverage, along with a list of local providers in the Princeton, NJ area who accept their insurance.

If your student is a non-U.S. citizen or has a dual citizenship, and has a local, U.S.-based insurance that can be administered in the Princeton, NJ area, the school needs a copy of the front and back of your insurance card.  Otherwise, we will need to enroll your student in The Hun School Student Accident & Sickness Insurance Policy, at an added cost of about $1,400 per year.

Even if you provided a copy of your card last year, we must have a new copy each year to confirm enrollment in private insurance plans.  Instructions to provide your insurance information, including a copy of your card is included in the Magnus system. 

Concussion Resources

CHOP Concussion Care for Kids

HEADS UP to Parents

The Center for Disease Control's Heads Up for Parents resources will help parents recognize, respond to, and minimize the risk of concussion or other serious brain injury.
