Doctor's Appointment

Nurse's Corner

I am excited to welcome you into the building for the 2022-2023 school year! I am looking forward to working together to assure a safe and healthy year! The goal of the School Nurse is to support the educational process by promoting optimum wellness and working closely with scholars, parents/guardians, teachers and administrators; assess and evaluate the health need of scholars; and to accommodate scholars with specific health concerns.

Medical Requirements

Each year our students are placed into class advisories where they work closely with their advisors and fellow classmates. Spending half the day in these advisories, students develop deep connections as they collaborate on projects that challenge them to think critically and develop new skills.

All Students

  • Form S865:
    Required for all students
    Completed by a parent/guardian
    To be submitted every year and if health status changes an updated form is required
    MUST be on file for student to receive acetaminophen (Tylenol/Tylenol Extra Strength) or ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin) in over the counter dosages

  • Form MED-1:
    Must be completed by student's medical provider 
    Required for administration of acetaminophen or ibuprofen greater than the over the counter dose
    Required for any other medication while at school

    • ​Insulin pumps, rescue inhalers and epi-pens may be carried with the student as long as an MED-1 is on file with the nurse.  All other medications must be taken to the nurse in a pharmacy container along with proper documentation.
