We have a licensed RN or Health Aid full time in the office Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, while school is in session.
All students enrolled at Hiawatha should have a record of immunizations for school entry or a signed exemption (exemption forms must be completed and signed annually). Please note that incoming kindergarten students should now have documentation of two varicella (chicken pox) vaccines or documentation of having the disease. See below link for Vermont School Entry Immunization requirements.
Yearly, parents are asked to complete a Health Information Form that will provide necessary information needed by the school nurse, including permission for over the counter pain medication. Forms are sent home over the summer (see link below).
All medical information is kept either electronically or in the student’s school health record, located in the Health Office.
The Health Office staff can be reached at 802-872-3327 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our fax number is 802-879-8190.
