NCPS Health Services

  • Welcome to The Nurse's Office

  • Dear Parents/Guardian,

    Welcome to New Canaan Public Schools Health Services, The Nurse's Office. We provide each school with registered nurses who have expertise in school health and pediatric care. State of Connecticut mandated screenings, immunization compliance and mandated physical examinations are managed and documented by your school's nurses.

    We ask parents/guardians to notify their school nurse if their child has any medical problems, e.g. allergies, experiencing a stressful situation, chronic illness, vision or hearing difficulties, recent surgery etc. The school nurse will work with the child’s physician, parent and other school personnel to meet special health needs in school so that the child may benefit from his/her educational program.

    All medications are administered by the school nurse during school hours. Only FDA-approved medications are administered. Metered-dose inhalers, insulin pumps and Epi-pens for upper level students may be self-administered with appropriate completed forms. District policy does not permit students to self-administer OTC or prescribed medications during school. Documentation from the child’s physician and parent/guardian signature is required by State of Connecticut School Health Laws for all medications given during school hours. Medication forms are available here on the website, in the The Nurse’s Office section.

    Sincerely,

    Janet Reed, R.N. NCPS Nursing Supervisor
