In the free "So Now What?" virtual series, the country's leading experts in education and childhood development cover timely topics like social emotional wellness, mental health, communication, tech safety and more.
Colonial students receive a wide array of basic and supplemental services, including special education, counseling and school health programs. More than 800 students qualify for individualized education programs (IEPs) due to specific disabilities, and approximately 200 students have gifted individual education programs. Fourteen school counselors support students in grades K-12, and four community counselors offer additional supplemental services.
School health services are provided by certified school nurses and staff nurses to all Colonial students as well as students attending non-public schools within the District. Routine health services include height, weight, vision, hearing and scoliosis screenings. Dental examinations and physical examinations are also provided according to provisions of the Pennsylvania School Code.
Additional supports to students and families include the services of a home and school visitor and a behavioral health adviser.
Even with the virtual start, all state mandated physical and dental exams, as well as required immunizations, must be on file with your child's school nurse.
What does your child need for the fall? Review immunization requirements, grade-level physical and dental exams, a link for a new medication dispensing form and more.
Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity and build strong relationships.
