To ensure that we are able to address any potential health issues that may arise, we have a Registered Nurse on staff five days a week. Having a school nurse ensures that our students health needs will be meet by a health care professional. Our nurse is able to immediately address any illness, injury, or medication administration that may become necessary.
She doesn’t just treat injuries and illness, she also trains school staff on a variety of subjects including first aid, proper sanitation and hygiene issues, as well as safety and injury prevention.Our nurse also develops lesson plans and teaches weekly health lessons to our kindergarten and first grade students. Topics include: nutrition, exercise, heart healthy habits, bullying, and self-esteem.
