Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. We hope your summer was safe and healthy. This year the nurses will be conducting the Massachusetts Mandatory Screenings which will include vision and hearing for all grades and postural screening for grade 5 only.

Current physicals are required for all students entering Carver Public Schools in Kindergarten as well as upon transfer to the district. Updated physicals are also required upon entrance to Grade 3.

It is important for children to attend school regularly. However, if your child is ill (such as a fever, vomitting or diarrhea) we ask that your child be fever/illness free for 24 hours prior to returning to school.

We encourage parents to contact us at any time to discuss health concerns and to keep us informed of any changes in your child’s health. You may also refer to the Student Handbook for the Health Office Policies. Below are forms and information that you might find useful.
