School Health Services

The Orono School Department provides the following health services to promote student wellness and reduce health barriers that may influence a student’s educational program:

  • Implementation of health plans for students with specific health needs.  If your child has a specific health concern, you are encouraged to contact the school nurse.  A plan will be developed for your child to receive the appropriate care with the least possible disruption to the educational program.
  • Collaboration with parents, school staff and community health agencies.
  • Health assessments, including health and developmental history, physical exams, vision, hearing and scoliosis screenings.
  • Monitoring and evaluation of communicable diseases and nuisance conditions.
  • Implementation of state health and immunization laws.

The Orono school nurse is always available to answer questions and address parents’ concerns.
