The Nurse’s office is designed to provide care to students who become ill or are injured while in school.
A cumulative health file is maintained for each student. This file includes notations of past illnesses, results of physical examinations, and other pertinent health information. Scoliosis, vision, and hearing screenings are administered to students depending on their grade level. The abnormal results are provided to the parents.
Parents are notified of any deviation from the normal pattern of health and suggestions are given for follow-up. It is likewise important that parents notify the school nurse in case of a student’s illness. If a student is to be excused or limited for an extended period from participation in school activities, he/she is required to bring a statement signed by a physician.
The school nurse is available to parents and students for conferences regarding health issues.
