A full-time Registered Nurse staffs the Health Office during the school day. All medical concerns, first aid and emergency care, 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. Requests to be excused from any of these mandated screenings must be submitted to the Health Office by the first day of classes.School Nurse Contact
