Mandatory Health Assessments: Mandatory Health Assessment Records are required for Grades Pre-K, Kindergarten, 6, and 10 and need to be on the State of Connecticut Health Assessment Record.

Screenings: All vision, hearing and postural screenings for the mandated Kindergarten, 6th and 10th grade physicals should be performed and recorded by your physician on the Student Health Assessment record.  In school, vision screenings are done in Grades K-6 and Grade 9; hearing is tested in Grades K-3, 5 and 8; and postural screenings (scoliosis) are performed in Grades 5 - 9. A referral form will be sent home if your child does not pass the screening test. Please follow up with the referral and submit the results from your medical provider to the Health Office.

Field Trips: Any student in need of a medication on a field trip must notify the nurse's office one week prior to the field trip.  A doctor's order is mandatory for prescription or over the counter medications.

Injuries/Illness: A Physician's note/order is required for any type of restriction due to injuries.  If your child has an injury or illness that prevents full participation in physical education/recess, communication from your medical provider is required specifying activities that must be modified or avoided.
