Health Services

  • Health Services icon Each school clinic is staffed with a full-time registered nurse to support the well-being of a student's health. They provide health screenings, assessments for chronic and acute illness, and first aid for school-related injuries. The registered nurse at each school is available to consult with parents as needed, regarding health concerns of students. The school clinic does not serve as the student's physician or primary care provider.

    Parents are asked to contact the school nurse if a child has any special nursing care needs that must be provided during school hours.  The nurse will facilitate and coordinate arrangements for meeting these needs, along with parent and physician collaboration and input.

Administration of Medications

  • Administration of medications, especially short term, should be done at home whenever possible. If a student is required to take prescription or non-prescription medication during the school day, the medication should be taken to school by parents or guardians.  All medication, prescribed (in original labeled container) and over-the-counter (in new sealed container/grades 5-12 ONLY), should be accompanied by a Student Medication Authorization Form completed by either a physician, nurse practitioner, or dentist and include the parent's signature.
