As a school nurse, I provide direct health care and medication administration to students and staff who have been injured or who present with acute or chronic illnesses. I am the liaison between school personnel, family, community, and health care providers. I provide annual screenings and referrals for health conditions in order to address potential health problems that are barriers to learning or symptoms of underlying medical concerns.
My role as a school nurse is to promote a healthy school environment. I provide for the physical and emotional safety of the school community, monitor immunizations, assure appropriate exclusion from and re-entry into school, and report communicable diseases as required by law. I also implement precautions for blood borne pathogens and other infectious diseases. I promote a healthy lifestyle by providing health education directly to individual students, groups of students or classes by using comprehensive and age appropriate information.
I have included the following important information and forms on this site. I hope you will find this helpful in meeting your child’s healthcare needs.
