School-aged Children and Teens
The HKPR District Health Unit School Health Team is here to support healthy schools in Haliburton County, Northumberland and the City of Kawartha Lakes. Our team of Public Health Nurses uses a Healthy Schools approach to address the needs of children, youth and families.
Together, let’s make schools a healthy place for students to learn, grow and reach their full potential.
Immunization and Vaccines
Ensure your child has all the required vaccines needed to attend school. Under the Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA), all Ontario students attending school must be fully vaccinated. Parents are also responsible for ensuring their child’s immunization record is up-to-date with the Health Unit.
School Nutrition Programs
The HKPR District Health Unit believes that nourishing young minds and bodies is paramount for optimal learning, growth, and play. Our team strives provide parents, caregivers, and educators with the essential knowledge and resources they need to ensure children receive the nutrients and energy required to thrive.
