Health Services/School Nurse

The health concerns of today’s school age children involve a broad range of physical, social, behavioral, and emotional issues which may impact on a student’s educational progress. It is the school nurse’s goal to help identify these issues and to provide comprehensive health services to the student population. In doing this, we strongly believe that elementary schools are promoting better school participation, improved learning and higher educational achievement all student.


Annual Health Card

Each year the school nurse sends out an Annual Health Update Card to the parents of every child in the school. The card allows parents to update important information about their child’s medical issues that the nurse should know. All information is kept confidential. Parents are asked to complete this card each year for the safety of their child. Students who receive any regular prescription medication in school will have their photograph attached to their health folder in the nurse’s office to allow any possible substitute nurse to double check that the correct student is receiving the medication. Any parent who does not want a picture attached to the school nurse’s confidential health folder should notify the principal of the school.



If a child becomes ill or is injured in some ways at school, the student needs to go to his/her teacher or to the adult ho is supervising the classroom, lunchroom, playground, or other area of the school. The staff member will direct the child to the school nurse’s office. Minor injuries such as scrapes, cuts, bumps, and bruises will be attended to by the school nurse. The school nurse will notify parents when any significant injury takes place. In cases of reported illness, the nurses will assess a child’s vital signs and make a determination as to whether or not the child will remain in school. A fever of above 100 degrees, vomiting, or diarrhea requires that a child be sent home as soon as possible. If your child is diagnosed with a contagious or communicable illness we request a note from your physician stating the illness so we can monitor the classroom and school for further outbreaks.
