Nurse/Health Office

The main function of the school nurse is to provide for the health concerns of students and staff, managing health problems and injuries when they occur, administer necessary medications, and provide support for the teachers with up-to-date health information and health lessons for the classroom.

Children who are healthy and who are getting good nutrition and proper rest are better able to learn and participate in class. The school health office is also a community resource room, where the school nurse can provide information on the many resources which are available to our families. Please inform the Health Office if there are any health concerns for your child that the school nurse should be aware of.
