Health Services

Windham Public Schools recognizes that healthy students are more effective learners. This is why each school within the district is equipped with a Health Office, and staffed with skilled nurses who ensure all of our students receive the support they need to stay well and succeed during the school day. The Health Services team works to ensure that state-required health documentation for school enrollment is up-to-date, and maintained confidential, as well as fulfilling integral roles in the following areas:

  • Assessment of Sick Child

  • Hearing and Vision screenings

  • Postural Screenings

  • Medication Administration (as directed by parent and advanced care provider)

  • Health and Wellness Education

  • Chronic Disease Management in School

  • and Coordination of Care

Health Requirements for School Enrollment

The Connecticut State Department of Education requires current documentation of the following prior to public school enrollment:

  • Recent Physical Exam (required)

  • Updated Immunizations (required)

Additionally, your child may need:

  • Medication Administration Authorization - If your child requires prescription medication while in school (EpiPen, inhaler, daily medication, etc.), this form MUST be completed by both a parent and healthcare provider prior to medication drop-off.


  • Over-the-Counter Medication Administration Form- Complete and return to your school nurse if you would like your child to be given over-the-counter medications while in school, if needed, such as Tylenol or Motrin.

Below are the health forms that you will need to register your child at Windham Public Schools, as well as other forms that be relevant to your child's care while at school. If you have any questions,  please contact your school's nurse
