Health Records for graduating seniors...
are given to students in Deering Coaching class. A letter from the superintendent explains that because of limited storage space, the School Department cannot maintain these records after graduation.

STUDENT HEALTH CENTER

Deering also has physicians who staff a Health Center, and are able to see students who are enrolled - it’s easy - once parents complete the enrollment form, students can be seen at school for a variety of health issues, illnesses, physical exams, and in some cases for immunizations.
Enrolled students can also participate in a Dental Clinic at school for cleaning and sealants if needed. Appointments are made through the nurse office.
