Health Services

Our School Nurse provides direct health care to students and staff who may be injured while at school, develop a sudden illness while at school, and who need care while at school as prescribed by a physician.  Our nurse also provides health screenings, helps promote a healthy school environment by monitoring  immunization compliance and evaluating potential communicable diseases, and also functions as a teacher by providing health education and information to students, family, and staff.  A school nurse does not diagnose, however, and may not treat without a physician's order.  A physician's order is necessary to give any medicines- prescription or over the counter- at school.
