School Nurse



A school nurse ensures that students are healthy, safe, and ready to learn.

In accordance with Connecticut General statutes, each student enrolled in the Waterbury school system is required to have a health assessment by a legally qualified practitioner of medicine (physician or osteopath licensed to practice in the United States), or by an advanced practice registered nurse, or Physician Assistant licensed to practice in Connecticut according to the following schedule:

  • Prior to initial entrance into preschool programs
  • Prior to initial entrance into kindergarten
  • For transfer students, prior to initial entrance into the Waterbury schools

Please contact our nurse for information on physicals, immunizations, medication administration forms, and medication drop-off.
