The school health program is designed to give first aid and limited medical care for injuries and illnesses that occur primarily during school hours. In addition to providing care, school nurses perform health screenings and provide support for students with special needs. Education and wellness promotion is a major focus of our program. Please remember that the Nurse’s Office is not a primary care facility. School nurses cannot diagnose, prescribe treatment, or give medications without a doctor's order.
Students who become ill or injured in school should report to the Health Office with a pass from their teacher. Only students with emergencies will be admitted without a pass.
The school nurse or designated staff MUST contact a parent/guardian before an ill student is sent home. Your students should not be calling you for this reason. If a student calls you and states they are ill, please refer them to the Nurse’s Office.
DONATIONS in the Nurse’s Office are always appreciated. Frequently used items include:
- Water bottles
- Lysol wipes
- Saltine Crackers
- Granola Bars
- Kleenex boxes
- Snack size baggies
I look forward to getting to know and caring for your students. Please feel free to contact me in the Nurse’s Office for any questions or concerns.
