A student's health status is directly related to his or her ability to learn. Children with unmet health needs have a difficult time engaging in the educational process. The school nurse supports student success by providing health care through assessment, intervention, and follow-up for all children within the school setting. The school nurse addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and social health needs of students and supports their achievement in the learning process. The school nurse not only provides for the safety and care of students and staff but also addresses the need for integrating health solutions into the education setting. (National Association of School Nurses [NASN / ANA], 2011).

Health Screening

Age/grade-level appropriate and program-specific health screenings of students (height, weight, vision, hearing, scoliosis) are performed each year. You will be notified should the nurse detect a possible problem.

Physical Education Excuses

A written parental excuse is required if your child cannot participate in P.E. class for three classes or fewer. If your child is unable to participate in P.E. for more than three classes, a doctor's excuse is required. A doctor's release is required for a child to participate in P.E. following surgery or serious injury.
