Health Office Mission Statement
The school nurse will foster academic achievement of all students by promoting health, wellness, and school attendance. This will be achieved using nursing assessment, interventions, health promotion in a safe, caring, and supportive environment as well as collaboration with families and the educational team.
School Nurse Services
The School Nurse is available during the school day to assist students with their health concerns. The School Nurse provides health education and counseling to prevent illness and promote healthy lifestyles. She is able to provide acute, episodic and emergency care to students and staff. It is important that the Student Emergency and Health form be completed and signed at registration on an annual basis. Please make sure it has a home, work, cell phone or pager number listed on it where an adult, that can assume responsibility of your child, including yourself, can be reached in case of illness or serious injury during the school day. Your signature on this form indicates permission to treat in the Nurse’s Office. It is important to remember that if any home or work contact numbers change throughout the year that the School Nurse be notified of this change. If you are planning to be away from home for an extended period of time, please inform the School Nurse’s office of the individual(s) assuming responsibility for your child in your absence.
