Welcome to the Health Office at Bellows Falls Union High School!

The Health Office is open from 7:55am until 3:30pm every school day.

My hope is to maintain the health and safety of all our students, faculty and staff while they are here during the day, as well as help them navigate through some of their health related issues outside of school.

As we move forward into our 2021-2022 school year, we will continue to follow the guidance of the Sate of Vermont, the AOE, the CDC and the APA to help maintain the safety of our school community as we navigate through the ever-changing Covid-19 pandemic. This will likely mean masking, social distancing and modifications to our every-day activities. Keep in mind, recommendations and protocols are changing daily! We ask for your patience and understanding as we all work through this together! Our mantra at this time needs to be "Just Go With The Flow!"

We are here to monitor and treat acute as well as chronic illness, injuries and mental health issues (which is done in coordination with our guidance department, the student assistance program, our school based clinicians, and our team from restorative justice). Please consider the health office the place you can come for any of the above issues!

As you navigate through these pages, you will find important information on current events (Covid-19 is at the top of our list at this time), and you will also find important health related documentation that we will be needing in the office. We have information on Concussions and the Return to Learn/Return to Play protocols, and information on immunizations. We try and keep this information as up to date as we can, and we will alert you if we add in anything else that we feel will be important for you to see. Check in with us regularly - you never know what you might find!

Please feel free to contact me with questions or health concerns, at any time.
