A full-time Registered Nurse staffs the Health Office during the school day. All medical concerns, health forms, medications and special needs are handled through this office.
During the school year the nurse measures all students for their height, weight and blood pressure. Students in grades 9 and 11 have their vision screened. Students in grades 10 and 12 have their hearing tested and are checked for scoliosis.
For any findings requiring further evaluation, the parent/guardian will be notified by mail. Written request to be excused from any of these mandated screenings must be submitted to the Health Office.
The Health Services Office also deals with: health counseling, first aid and emergency care, parent conferences and faculty conferences.
