The Health Office is staffed all student days by the Certified School Nurse or Registered Nurse Assistant. The Registered Nurse Assistant contacts parents of sick or injured children, administers prescribed medications, provides first aid in emergencies and assists with health screenings and record keeping. In addition to the aforementioned, the Certified School Nurse provides health assessments, consultation and referral, health counseling and health education, prepares individual health plans, delegates and supervises medication administration, monitors student health status, and assists with health prevention and health promotion activities.
Please be sure the emergency contacts you list know that the school may contact them and are willing to pick your child up from school when you are unavailable. It also helps if your emergency contacts are easily reached by phone when you are not.
Please notify the office immediately of any changes or additions that need to be made on your child’s emergency information during the school year.
