Our mission is to provide direct health care services to students and staff members and to promote health and wellness. The School Clinic, directed by a Registered Nurse, provides for the health care needs of the school community. Services offered include immediate care for students who are ill or injured; medication administration; collaboration with students; parents, teachers, and other staff as needed; maintenance of student health records; documentation of State required health screenings; and care for students with chronic health conditions. The role of the clinic staff is to report signs and symptoms of health problems and encourage individuals to contact their own health care provider for diagnosis and treatment.
All new parents must provide the school nurse with an Immunization record and complete a Student Medical History Form prior to their child starting school. No immunization record - no school. All immunization records must be translated if not in the english language.
All parents are given access to our school web-based health computer system called SNAP. The program enables parents to access their child's health information, update medical information, give permission to treat and communicate with the nurse.
