Office of the School Nurse

According to the National Association of School Nurses, healthy children are successful learners. Our Office of the School Nurse is dedicated to collaborating with families and faculty to support students’ health and facilitate their success at school. The school nurse has a multi-faceted role, one that focuses on the physical, mental, emotional, and social health of students, as well as their progress in the learning process.

The Office of the School Nurse is responsible for:

  • Collecting and assessing student health forms
  • Ensuring student immunization compliance
  • Helping manage chronic health conditions like allergies, diabetes, asthma, seizures, and more
  • Creating student-specific health plans when requested
  • Conducting screenings, as required by the state
  • Providing first aid and emergency care services
  • Administering medications to students, as directed by parents and/or physician
  • Keeping emergency equipment, like medical kits, AEDs, and more, in good working condition
