Health Office



Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

The following medical information and/or requirements are needed for each student enrolled at The Maine Girls' Academy for the 2016-2017 academic year: 

 

  • Combination Emergency/Participation/Parental Approval Form and Biographical Form (double sided) to be completed and signed by a parent or guardian. You will need to complete this form at the beginning of each school year.  Students will not be allowed to attend classes until this form is completed and on file with the Main Office.


    • If your daughter is involved in a club or a sport, please note that this form may be provided to the adult in charge to have on file in case of an emergency.

 

  • Medication Authorization Form must be completed and signed by a parent or guardian.  No student will be given medication unless this form is returned to the Health Office.  Parents and Guardians must complete this form at the beginning of each school year.

 

  • Physical:  A physical is required of all first-year students. Transfer students need to show proof of having had a physical within the past two years. If the appointment for the physical cannot be made before the start of the school year, please notify the Health Office at 207-797-3802 x2045 as to the date scheduled.

  • ImPACT Test: Immediate Post Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing.  If your daughter is involved in a sport, or wishes to be tested, she is required to take the computerized exam that assists health care providers in the diagnosis and managements of concussions.


  • Vision Screening: In following State of Maine guidelines for Vision Screening, all 9th graders will be screened for distance acuity within the first quarter of the school year.  Parents will be notified of any issues found with their student’s distance vision screening, which will include a written recommendation for a follow up with your own physician. This screening is performed in the Health Office by the school nurse at no charge to the family

 

  • Immunizations:  In order to ensure that your daughter’s immunization information is up to date in her health record, please have the doctor’s office fax or mail, to my attention, a record of any immunizations she has received since Kindergarten registration. The School fax number is 207-797-3804. Please note that a copy of your daughter’s immunization records can be provided to us by a parent.

Please note:  Although not required by the State of Maine, the increase in cases of Hepatitis B has led health professionals to recommend that you contact your family physician regarding inoculation of the HBV vaccine. If your daughter has received the series of Hepatitis B immunizations, please have the doctor’s office fax or mail a copy of the immunization dates to my attention (fax: 207-797-3804).

 

All paperwork must be returned to school by August 8, 2016.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 207-797-3802 ext.2045.

 

Sincerely,

 

Diane Miller
School Nurse
