Health & School Nurse

The school health program is designed to promote student wellness so each child can obtain maximum benefit from their educational experience. School health personnel provide screenings, assessment, first-aid, referrals, follow-up, and other services to ensure the health, safety and well-being of all children.

Each school is staffed with school health personnel on a daily basis. Certified school nurses and health aides work in collaboration with parents, students and educators in supporting a healthy environment that is conducive to learning.

Physical & Dental Examinations

Physical examinations are required of all students entering Kindergarten or first grade, in sixth grade and in eleventh grade. These grades were chosen because they represent critical periods of growth and development in a student's life.
Dental examinations are required of all students entering Kindergarten or first grade, in third grade and in seventh grade.
We recommend that physical and dental examinations be done by your family health care provider or dentist, since he/she knows your student and your student's health history.

The Physical Exam Form should be returned to the school nurse and must be dated within one year of the beginning of school. Dental Examination forms should be completed and returned to the school nurse by the beginning of the school year.

If a private doctor or dentist is unavailable, the school offers physical examinations during the school year. A notice will be sent home with the pertinent information.

Emergency Card

This is parent/guardian daytime emergency/immediate contact for a sick or injured child. This is not associated with the parent emergency notication system.

Often parents will have changes in work numbers, cell phone numbers, emergency contacts, etc. Valuable time is frequently spent by school nurses or office staff trying to locate a parent for a sick or injured child.

Contact both the secretary and the school nurse of your child's building for any changes to your child's phone, address, and parent or guardian information.
