The Connecting Kids to Coverage Project

Health insurance is an important part of staying healthy.

It helps pay for care in case of illness and injury.
It will protect your family from medical bills too.
MaineCare is free or low-cost health insurance that offers a broad set of benefits including:

  • Well-child visits

  • Dentist visits

  • Prescriptions

  • Vaccinations

  • Vision tests

  • ...and more!

Maine’s Free Health Care HelpLine can help.
Consumers for Affordable Health Care advocates the right to quality, affordable health care for every person in Maine.
The Connecting Kids to Coverage project is working to help Maine kids get free and low cost health insurance.


Acton Elementary School has partnered with VNA Home Health Hospice (in partnership with Mercy) to conduct a flu clinic at our school on Friday, September 30, 2016 from 1:00pm until 2:30pm. You will be notified if there is a change in the planned date.

Have you been thinking about making life style changes for your family? Not sure where to begin? Looking for resources? Take a look at 5 2 1 0 Goes To School.

The Acton Elementary School is one of approximately 80 schools throughout York County participating in the 5 2 1 0 Goes To School program, a component of LET’S GO! Developed through Maine Medical Center a multi-setting approach was designed to reach youth and families where they live, learn, work, and play in order to reinforce the importance of healthy eating and active living.

The program is based on the following daily easy-to-remember message:

5 or more fruits and vegetables

2 hours or less recreational screen time *

1 hour or more of physical activity

0 sugary drinks, more water & low fat milk

*Keep TV/Computer out of the bedroom. No screen time under the age of 2.

Our school was recently awarded a $500 mini grant, authored by Lisa Dewitt. The focus of this project was to obtain additional resources for all of our students to be more active and to have more choices of activities during outside recess time.
