Health

The school health room is equipped to handle illnesses and injuries that occur at school.

The nurse's goal is to assist in the education process by improving the health status and learning of children.  "Healthy children learn better."  It is our goal to keep children at school as much as possible.  Please keep your child at home if he/she has one of the conditions listed below.  If your child becomes sick at school, you will be called to pick them up promptly.
