School Nurse Not Assigned Yet

A nurse has not been assigned to our school this school year, yet.  The Office of School Health is diligently attempting to staff all schools. Unfortunately, they have not filled all of the positions at this time.

The Office of School Health is making every effort to obtain a full time nurse for every school. Please note: although all students deserve a school nurse, they staff based on medical acuity and the schools with the greatest medical needs (those that have trachs, ventilators, and a higher level of care) must be covered first.

Students that need medication at school must have the Medication Authorization/Prescriber form signed by a health care provider and parent.
