Welcome to the Merriam Avenue Health Office! If your child requires medication in school (prescription/over the counter) a new medication form must be submitted at the start of each school year. Please see the bottom of the page for attached physician's forms. New students are required to submit a physical form (within the last 365 days).

Children will be screened annually for BMI, vision, and hearing.  Scoliosis screenings will be performed on all 4th grade students. A referral will be sent home if your child’s results are not within the norm.  If you do not want your child to be screened please send in a note specifying what screenings you would like your child to be exempt from.  

During the school day if your child visits the Health Office for a minor incident you will be notified via Caredox email.  Please make sure you are checking your emails so you can see why/when your child visited. For any other incident or if your child needs to be picked up I will call you.  Please make sure your phone numbers are up to date in Caredox and Powerschool.
