PCES Announcements and Upcoming Events

  • Maine School Immunization Requirements Rule

    Maine School Immunization Requirements Rule

    On December 20, 2016, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Education revised the Maine School Immunization Requirements rule. The changes further align Maine’s immunization rules with current national recommendations and serve to better protect the health of all Maine people. The following two changes were made:

    -Effective immediately, the expulsion period for varicella disease (chicken pox) has increased from 16 to 21 days. This means that if a case of chicken pox is confirmed in your school and exclusions are recommended, any child who has not provided proof of immunization or history of disease will be unable to attend school or any school related activity for 21 days after symptom onset of the LAST case.

    -Effective for the 2017-2018 school year, all students entering, advancing, or transferring into seven grade will need to receive one dose of Tdap (tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis) vaccine before attendance is allowed. This Tdap requirement is for 7th grade students only, students in grades 8-12 are not required, but it is highly recommended.

    You can find the link to the rule (Chapter 126/261) here: https://mainedoenews.net/2017/01/05/revisions-to-chapter-126-261-regulation/

    Please keep this in mind as you take your student to the doctor between now and September. The doctor’s office can fax an updated immunization record to the school at 876-4628. In summary, if your student who will be entering 7th grade in September does not have an updated Dtap on record, he/she will not be able to begin the school year.

  • Spring Sports Physicals
    If your 5th or 6th grader is interested in playing a sport, a physical exam needs to be on file within the past two years.

    Susan Chessa, ARNP, will be doing physicals at PCES at no cost, on February 16th.

    Permission slips are in the PCES office and need to be returned to the school nurse by February 10th.
    If your child has had a recent physical, his/her PCP can fax a copy to the school.

  • New Weather Station at PCES
    Rochelle Titcomb received a grant this summer from the Perloff Family Foundation for a weather station project. We now have a really nice new working weather station on the PCES roof. A web cam will also go up there in the future.

    If you'd like to check out the current weather, you can check it out here on Rainwise:
