Subscribe to Receive Monthly Healthy Schools Newsletters

We invite local educators and other school staff to complete a subscription form in order to receive a monthly Healthy Schools Newsletter from HPEPH. Evidence-informed information about school health topics can help parents and caregivers to make informed decisions about caring for their child. HPEPH is committed to helping schools share this information with parents and caregivers, with the goal of encouraging parent engagement and raising awareness about evidence-based resources.

The Public Health Nurse and/or Health Promoter assigned to your school continues to be available to your school administrator to see if there the school has any questions or requires support.

This subscription list may also be used to share urgent or important information to education partners on an as-needed basis.
