We are the Tallmadge School Health Services Team from Akron Children's Hospital. We are dedicated to supporting the academic success of all children and youth through health promotion, education and child advocacy. School Health Services nursing staff are an extension of Akron Children’s Hospital in the school community. We promote and advocate for student health and wellness in school. We help manage patient populations and individual student health needs in the school setting. If you have any health questions or concerns, please contact the District RN or your school's clinic staff.
We are almost finished with hearing and vision screenings in all the buildings. Please watch for referrals to come home if your child requires further evaluation. When you take your student for their follow up appointment with the doctor, please send a copy of any information from the doctor back with your student so that we can put it in their health folder. Thank you!
We will be providing another opportunity for Middle School students and High School students to receive the flu shot on November 29 during the school day. Print out the consent form on the right and send it in by November 26 if you wish for your student to receive the flu vaccine. In addition to the flu vaccine, any Senior still needing the Meningicoccal vaccine can receive it on November 29. Please look over the vaccine information, fill out the consent on the right and send in with your student by November 26. Due to timing and lack of space we will not be offering the vaccine clinic in the Elementary buildings at this time.
Also on the right, I have included tips to maintain healthy weight during the holidays. Wishing all of you a healthy, safe Thanksgiving!
