Health Assessment Information

 

Periodic health assessments are required of all students in the Norwalk Public Schools.  Findings must be recorded on the “State of Connecticut Department of Education Health Assessment Record.”  Student health assessments are required upon entry to the NPS system preschool and kindergarten and during grade 6, and grade 9.   In addition, students participating in interscholastic sports must have a health assessment annually.

Grade 6 and grade 9 health assessments must be performed after July 1st of the year in which the child will be entering the respective grade and submitted to the school nurse before the end of that school year. No child will be permitted to enter grade 7 or grade 10 unless this mandate has been met. 

Students new to NPS and Kindergarteners  must have a complete health assessment (including immunization compliance, current hemoglobin and TB risk assessment) on file in the school nurse's office before they may attend school. There is no grace period.

If you have  questions regarding mandatory health assessments, please call your school nurse.
