IMPORTANT - FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE:
Attention Parents of Current Grade 6 Students:
State law requires ALL Grade 6 students to have a physical exam at their doctor during their Grade 6 year BEFORE they enter Grade 7. Doctors' offices quickly get booked during the summer months. Please schedule your child's physical for this Spring. Without a recent physical, your child will not be able to enter a Connecticut School at the end of August. Students entering Grade 7 next year must be up to date on all vaccinations. Any questions, please contact School Nurse, Mrs. Page Seyfried at the email address listed above.
Please note: The physical exam must be on the Connecticut Health Form which is available from your Pediatrician's office. Forms can also be printed at home using this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uwd3GAlHGw8xLVw3DDxKVhWsxtemCo1v/view
