Welcome to Our Health and Wellness Page!
Student health significantly influences one’s ability to participate fully in the School community. Our school nursing staff strives to enhance each student’s well being by insuring that each student has a complete medical history including up-to-date emergency contact forms. We believe that good student health begins with prevention and we regularly screen students for vision and hearing services in accordance with Pennsylvania state regulations.
We provide care to students with chronic illnesses and minor injuries. We’re your partners in supporting your child’s health.

School Health Forms are an important part of providing a safe and supportive school experience for your children. Please send your child’s health information at the start of each school year to allow us time to address health concerns and put plans in place for your child’s health.

Student Medication Policy
If it is necessary for your child to take any medication during school hours, the school nurse must receive written authorization from a parent or legal guardian.
It is important to know the communicable diseases that can affect your children, their symptoms, and how they are transmitted, so that you can take the best measures to prevent/treat them. Please see the Philadelphia Department of Public Health Chart.
