Student and School Health

  • When children are healthy, they are more likely to be in school every day, learn and participate more in class and to do better on assignments and tests.

    That's why City Schools provides a range of health services for students — from routine vision and hearing screenings to dental care to mental health counseling — and, like all school districts in Maryland, requires that children be up to date with immunizations before registering for school. The district is also committed to ensuring that its school buildings provide healthy places for learning.

    For more information about health services at your school, contact your school leader, school nurse or health aide.
