School Health Service 1944 –
Teachers in all Minot schools were trained to conduct health inspections to screen children showing signs of deviating from normal. If needed public health nurses were called in and in some cases examinations by the district health officer was needed. Children who were absent from school because of communicable diseases were required to have a permit to return to school. The permits were issued by the family physician or the health unit …. 869 school permits were issued in 1944.
