School Health provides physical examinations required for school entry, participation in sports and special education evaluation for eligible students. Our staff physician, along with the school's assigned public health nurse and aide, conducts these clinics at certain middle and high schools around the County. Appointments are made through the school health clinics.
The Ready Families Program provides health screening, immunizations, and community referrals to non-English speaking students entering Arlington Public Schools through the Intake Center. Now located on the first floor of the Syphax Education Center at 2110 Washington Blvd, Arlington, VA 22204, the program is staffed by a bilingual public health nurse and clinic aide, and strives to meet the needs of families new to the Arlington school system, and many times, new to the United States.
PIE is a family-centered program that serves children who have special needs from birth through two years of age. The program helps families work with their children to help them develop to their maximum potential. Services include individual plans for each child for services such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and educational services. Click HERE for more information.
