The State of Ct has changed the screening requirements for middle school. The only screening required is scoliosis for grade 7 girls. The screening will be in October and February during the PE class. Any student who is not in PE (for any reason) will be screened in the nurses’ office. Referral Letters will be sent home if your child has a known diagnosis or if the nurse observes any signs of concern.
Grade 6 students are required to have a complete physical on a ST of CT blue form. The date of the physical must be between June 22, 2016 and August 31, 2017. The St of CT also requires immunizations for entry into grade 7 in September 2017. Letters will be sent to the parents/guardians throughout this year as a reminder until the forms are in the nurses’ office. If you receive a letter and you think you already sent the forms in, please call the nurses’ office at (860) 763- 8880. Better to check and not wait until end of August.
Concussions, breaks, sprains, crutches and other problems: If your child sustains a concussion or any physical injury, call the nurses’ office and we will help with your student’s return. Please be sure your student comes to the nurses’ office when returning to school and has the doctor or emergency room notes. We have plans for all types of injuries and/or needs.
Texting and phone calls: If your student texts you or calls from a house office or personal phone asking to be picked up, please advise them to go to the nurses’ office for evaluation. We will always allow students to call home if they ask. Additionally, we call parents when a student has an active illness or is contagious.
