Nurse

  • The school nurse supports the physical, mental, emotional and social health of students thereby promoting successful learners.

    Remember, a note from the student’s physician granting permission to administer medication is required if the student needs to take medication at school. Additionally, the nurse does not administer any over the counter medications without a note from the doctor.
