The school nurse at Weston High School is available to provide emergency care for students in case of accidents or sudden illnesses. The school nurse is also available to counsel students, their parents, and faculty on health matters. Before admission to Weston Schools, all new entrants are required by State law to show proof of immunization against Polio (IPV - 3 doses), diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus (DPT - 4 doses), Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR), proof of immunity to varicella (chickenpox), Hepatitis B vaccine (3 doses), a tuberculosis skin test, and a physical examination by a licensed physician. Complete physical examinations are required for all new students and incoming ninth graders. The school nurse should be kept updated on any changes of a student's medical condition or medication that are pertinent to a student's full and safe participation in school. If medication is to be given in school an authorization form for the administration of medication is needed and must be signed by the physician and parent/guardian. Students who are exempt from having a physical examination because of their medical/religious beliefs must present this documented information to the school heath office.
