Periodic health assessments are required of ALL students enrolled in Norwalk Public Schools.  Please note: Students need to be in compliance whether they are enrolled in remote (distance) learning or in-person school.  

Please schedule an appointment with your child’s provider for a physical exam and vaccines if your child is new to Norwalk Public Schools District, Pre-K, K, or a rising 7th or 10th grader. 

If the student already had a physical exam and met the requirements, the appropriate blue or yellow State of Connecticut Health Assessment Record should be given directly to the nurse as soon as possible. NPS School Nurses will be in their buildings on August 27, 2020. 

Incoming Pre-K, Kindergarteners and Students New to NPS for the 2020/2021 School Year:

  • A recent complete health assessment must be on file in the school nurse’s office before they may attend school.  This includes a TB risk assessment and hemoglobin as well as an up-to-date vaccine record. (yellow HAR for Pre-K,  blue HAR for Kindergarteners and all other students)

    All Students Entering Grade 7 for the 2020/2021 School Year:

  • All current 6th grade students should have submitted a health assessment record and updated vaccine record to the school nurse during this school year.  A physical exam done on or after  July 1, 2019 will meet the requirement.  (blue HAR)
  • This updated complete health assessment must be on file with the school nurse before any student may enter 7th grade.  Additionally, a student must have documentation of receiving two vaccines – MCV4 and Tdap – before entering 7th grade.
  • No student will be permitted to enter 7th grade until these requirements are met.

All Students Entering Grade 10 for the 2020/2021 School Year:

  • No student will be permitted to enter 10th grade until this requirement is met.

Sports Physicals:

  • All sport physical exams, including a current hemoglobin, must be submitted within one year of playing a sport and must be updated every year the student is participating, regardless of grade. (blue HAR)

Please call your school nurse with any questions about the required health assessments or immunizations.
