Physical Exam Requirements Per School Policy

All students entering HBHS will have a complete physical exam within one year and every two years thereafter;normally in grades nine and eleven. Documentation from the medical provider will be kept in the student's health record.

Anyone participating in athletics is required to have proof of a physical prior to tryouts and this should be given to the School Nurse.


Immunization Requirements

NH State Law requires that all students have a completed immunization record on file in the health office before they may begin school.  This requirement may be waived by obtaining a medical or religious exemption that will be kept in the student's health record.  You may access a list of current immunization requirements by choosing "Forms and Information" on the health office website or by consulting your medical provider.

Medications in School

 

Please see the NH Department of Education Technical Advisory 311.02 on the Health Office Link from the HBHS Web Page

 

If prescription medications are required during the school day, appropriate medical and parental documentation are required to be on file in the health office. Over-the-counter medications including herbal medication, that are needed during the school day require appropriate parental permission. Parents will need to provide the school nurse pertinent information on specific herbal medication that will be given during the school day.  Medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, are not to be carried by students without medical/parental and health office clearance. All medications are required to be in their original packaging.




Chronic Health Management

 

Many parents rely on the school nurse for primary care assessments and treatment of chronic health conditions such as diabetes, lyme, asthma, allergies and mental/behavioral health. Documentation is required by the treating medical provider to allow us to provide optimal care for your child during the school day.

 

Acute Physical or Mental/Behavioral Health Management

 

Students may return with physical limitations or medication changes that will affect their ability to function in the dynamic school environment. If your child has been seen in the primary, acute-care, or emergency setting documentation is required by the treating medical provider. Such documentation should outline how we can best support your child during the school day.

 

Anaphylatic Allergies

 

Please be mindful of our student population with anaphylactic allergies.  Hollis Brookline High School is not allergen free but we strive to create a safe and allergen aware environment for our entire school community.  Be aware this can include perfumes, latex balloons, and many food selections that may be brought to school.
