EHS Nurses' Office
Welcome to Health Services at Essex High School and Center for Technology
Health Services for Essex High School and the Center for Technology are provided by a team of experienced registered nurses. Our role first and foremost is to ensure that medical or physical and emotional health needs do not impede our student’s access to their education. We also advocate for and implement interventions that keep our entire school population safe and healthy.
Parents are our primary partners in keeping students healthy and available for learning. The most effective treatment starts with good information. We ask all parents to complete the Yearly Health Information forms on the Parent Portal of Powerschool as a great start. We invite any parent to contact us via phone ( 802-857-7788 ) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss how we can best assist your child.
EHS nurses also partner with School Counseling, Special Education, Health Educators, Athletic trainers, teachers, principals and our Safety Team for special projects, guest speaking, and committees to advocate for individual students and the school population overall. We are always available to discuss any student's interest in medical careers as well.
Additionally,we have a close relationship with the Vermont Department of Health for the prevention and detection of communicable diseases such as Covid, Influenza, and other childhood diseases along with any new infectious agents.
Please use the tab bar options on the left of the page to find out more information or to access important forms.
Regarding Covid specifically:
We encourage families to contact us (802-857-7788 or email@example.com) for any concerns about illness symptoms, when to stay home, Covid testing and close contact with Covid consultation. We are here to assist and facilitate your student’s continuous access to education while keeping our school population healthy and safe.
