The health program at Long Meadow Elementary School is planned to provide care for emergency injuries and sickness, to educate the students in the field of good health habits, to prevent and control communicable diseases, to provide general health examinations and services, and to work with parents and teachers to provide a healthful physical and emotional environment for all students.
The Health Office is supervised by two registered nurses and equipped to provide emergency care for injuries and sickness that occur at school. If further care or treatment is required, the parent is called, and the child is sent home or to a doctor. Injuries incurred at home should be seen by a physician.
Physical examinations are required for new entrants into preschool, kindergarten and all other students new to the Region from out of State or country or a student from a private school. Pre-school students need an annual physical to comply with certification requirements.
The State of Connecticut has specified certain immunizations and screenings that must be complete in order to attend school. These items are noted with an asterisk on the blue physical form sent home to you.
