The Nursing Department is responsible for the health and welfare of all students during the school day. This is accomplished by first ensuring that all students have a current physical on file and are up to date on all required immunizations. School nurses are trained to assess everything from minor illnesses and injuries that would then return a student to class to major issues that would warrant dismissal home or a transfer to the emergency room. School nurses also network with many community agencies such as Uncas Health Dept., UCFS, MYSB, the State Dept. of Immunizations, and many pediatricians to name a few. We work closely with administrators, regular education, pre-school, and special education teachers to meet the medical needs of all students during the school day. School nurses daily help keep students healthy, in school, and ready to learn.
