Better Health=Better Learning
Healthy Kids Make Better Learners
Our goal is to help students stay healthy so they can access their education and be successful at school.
School Nurses Have Many Jobs!
We have a team approach. We work with students, parents/guardians, counselors, administrators, educators, café services, custodians, and community and state agencies to provide safe and effective care and case management for our students.
Managing Illness During These Times can be difficult
We stay up to date on the COVID pandemic and make sure to follow the current guidance from the Vermont Department of Health and Agency of Education.
Access to Care is important to us!
We believe our students should have access to a medical and dental home for medical/dental care.
VERMONT HEALTH CONNECT can assist you online or call toll-free. A personal Health Assister is also available to help you find the right health coverage for your family.

School Nurses follow the State Standards of Practice and Health Services. All medications need to be kept at the health office and be in the current pharmacy bottle or in the original packaging if the medication is over the counter. Prescription medication needs a medical provider's order and we need parent permission for an over the counter medication.
Emergency Action Plans
Annual Health Forms are now on PowerSchool!
The health forms go home with students at the beginning of the school year and should be sent back to the Health Office to provide updated medical information as well as current emergency contact information. Instructions for filling out the form online are available on this link HERE.
Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
Make sure your child's immunization record is up to date. The adolescent immunization schedule can be accessed here. We follow the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatrics and recommend your child to have a well child visit yearly. Athletes need the sports clearance form completed every 2 years and can be found here. Access the recommendations for preventative pediatric health care here.
