Health

The Burlington Elementary health office is located inside the main office. Our health clerk, verifies and maintains immunization records and other required health records for each child, monitors the administration of medication, and tends to playground injuries as necessary. We also help children celebrate the loss of each primary tooth that comes out at school!

Health Requirements for Burlington Students

Colorado law requires children in school to have an immunization record on file and to have the required immunizations. Make sure your child has the required immunizations before school starts.

Health Tips

Cold and flu viruses can spread easily, especially as the weather gets colder and students spend more time indoors. Give your child a good foundation for optimal health by modeling and encouraging these practices in your household:

  • Get a good night's sleep, especially on school nights.
  • Eat nutritious food.
  • Drink water.
  • Get plenty of exercise and fresh air. As long as the outside temperature is above freezing, bundle up and go outside anyway.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water.
  • Use tissues for runny noses and wash hands afterward.
  • Cough in your sleeve or shirt rather than in your hands.

  • Over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and cough syrup.
  • Prescription medicines.
