Welcome back to the 2018-19 school year. We are looking forward to a safe and healthy school year. We are here to support you and your students. The goal of the Nurse’s Office is to support the educational process by promoting optimum wellness and working closely with parents/guardians, teachers and administrator; assess and evaluate the health need of students; and to accommodate students with specific health concerns.
There are many ways a School Nurse benefits a school:
School nurses improve attendance through health promotion and disease prevention and management.
We perform health screenings every year for each student and follow-up with parents/guardians as needed.
School nurses are an important liaison between schools, parents/guardians, physician and community agencies.
School nurses help improve academics by helping students stay healthy and remain in the classroom ready to learn.
The School Nurse participates in the identification, referral and health appraisal of students.
School nurses help with staff wellness and designate and train others in the administration of emergency medication for when the nurse is not present.
School nurses assist with accountability by following State and Federal Guidelines in compliance with state immunization requirements, mandated screenings and exams, maintaining health records, and preparing for emergencies.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns at 215-400-3530. Have a safe and healthy school year!
