School Nurse Health Services
The school health program consists of three interdependent and inter-related parts: health education, a healthy environment and health services. The goal of the Montville Public Health Program is to assist each child to attain and maintain his/her optimum state of health so that he/she may benefit to the maximum degree from his/her educational experience.
