    About The Nurse

    School Nursing is a specialzed practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic

    problems: and actively collaborate with others to build students and family capacity for adaptation, 
    self-managememt, self-advocacy, and learning.

    Goals of the School Health Services Program

    Welcome to our web site. Our goal is to provide families with an access to health information. You will find
    policies regarding medications, absences, and immunizations. We will also be providing some updated 
    health information as often as we are able. We hope you will find this site to be a helpful resource.
     
    Healthy Children are Learners. The primary function of the certified school nurse is to strengthen the educational 
    process through improvement and promotion of student health. Some of the ways this is accomplished are 
    through the following: 
     
    1. Vision, Auditory,B/P,Scoliosis screenings,Height and Weight measurements. 
    2. Administration of Medications (see medication guidelines on this site) 
    3. Determinations regarding school attendance due to illness or injury.
    4. Illness, injury assessments and interventions, including first aid. 
    5. Health counseling
