Health Services

We recognize that healthy children are better learners. Our school nurses work collaboratively to promote the health and safety of our students.

The role of school nurses

Our school nurses provide care for students at all schools. They perform the following services:

  • Develop and assist with the implementation of individual health plans for students with chronic health conditions
  • Ensure student medical profiles are current with parent/guardian-supplied information
  • Inform parents/guardians about the prevention and control of communicable diseases
  • Oversee and administer prescription medications to students
  • Provide direct care and first aid for students
  • Provide health-based information for families when requested
  • Serve as in-house resources, liaisons and advocates for students, parents and community service organizations regarding individual and general health care issues
  • Train and support school staff to assist students' needs as identified by their health plans
  • Vision and hearing screenings, issue referrals as needed
  • Work collaboratively with Food Service to ensure student restrictions based on allergies are followed
