Nursing Services

The role of the school nurse is to enhance the education process by maximizing the health and well being of school age children and adolescents. The school nurse works with the building staff and parents to ensure that each student is in the best possible physical and emotional health and may benefit from school experiences. The school nurse implements programs and services designed to provide detection and follow-up of health problems. The school nurse facilitates crisis intervention for ill/injured students, health counseling/referral, control of infectious disease within the school environment and formulates planning with other school personnel regarding appropriate education placement of the students with health needs.
