Vaccination Rates

The Vermont Department of Health collects vaccination coverage data from all Vermont public and independent schools. Vaccination coverage, or the percent of people who have received particular vaccines, is measured at national, state and local levels. The Immunization Program reviews data to assess vaccination coverage, identify populations at risk and measure the impact of current initiatives. - Vermont Department of Health

Health Services at DBS

Medication

Schools may administer prescription medication only from pharmacy labeled bottles and only with notes from both the guardian and the doctor giving permission. Students with inhalers should check with the school nurse. Nonprescription medicine may be given only with the permission of the guardian and school nurse. Please check with the school nurse before you send any medication.


Head Lice

The Hartford School District follows Vermont Department of Health recommendations regarding head lice. Students should not share hats and other items that come in contact with hair. Students with head lice will be sent home at the end of the school day and guardians will be notified; they may not return until they have been treated to remove the head lice/nits. Students will be checked upon returning to school.


Fevers, Vomiting, and Diarrhea

Students with fevers of 100° or greater, vomiting and/or diarrhea will be sent home. Students who have had these symptoms should not return to school until

The child’s temperature has remained normal for 24 hours without the aid of acetaminophen, ibuprofen or other fever reducing compounds,
Vomiting has stopped for 24 hours,
Diarrhea has subsided for 24 hours.


Immunization

Vermont’s Immunization Rule, adopted pursuant to 18 V.S.A. § 1123, requires that before entry, children/students must have all the required immunizations unless exempt for medical or religious reasons. Effective July 1, 2016 the exemption for philosophical reasons is no longer an option.


Allergy Management Plans

For safety reasons, all student allergies must be communicated to the school nurse and, if needed, an allergy management plan will be created.  When stipulated by food allergy management plans, classroom snacks, student snacks and lunches, and classroom party food will be regulated and supervised by school personnel.  Families will be informed of any restrictions when and where they are necessary.
