Clinic Services

A school nurse is available during school hours only. Services provided in the clinic are as follows:

Basic first aid for injuries that occur during school hours, Treatment of illnesses that occur during school hours, Medication administration in compliance with our medication policy, Student screenings, Health maintenance for those students with chronic illnesses.

If your child is seen in the clinic for anything more than minor illness or injury you will be notified. For this reason it is imperative to provide us with up-to-date phone numbers for both parent and emergency contact persons.

Our main goal is to keep healthy children in school, to keep them safe and healthy while they are here, and to identify those children needing medical referral. Nurses practice under strict guidelines and are not allowed to make medical diagnoses. Therefore, any symptoms exhibited at home need to be addressed by your child’s physician.
