The Dedham School Health Services mission is to foster growth, development and educational achievement in all students, through health and wellness promotion in a safe and supportive environment.
NOTES FROM THE NURSES
If your child had a physical exam over the summer (or while we were out of school during the spring), please submit a copy to your DMS nurses! Telehealth physical exams are acceptable. It is very important that updated physical exams are on file so we can better serve your child! The state requires all students to be up to date with immunizations to attend school - in person and virtually. Click Here to Learn more.
NEW FOR 2020
NEW THIS YEAR, the influenza vaccine is mandatory and must be completed by December 31, 2020. We recommend getting the vaccine as soon as possible as the flu season will soon be upon us and it is very difficult to differentiate between influenza symptoms and COVID-19 symptoms.
