The high school has a full-time nurse on duty. The nurse monitors student illness and injuries, treats minor injuries, dispenses medications, and counsels students on health-related programs. The nurse is also available to answer questions and provide advice to parents on health-related concerns. In addition, she does yearly vision and hearing screenings. The nurse keeps the school’s health records and works with the County Health Department on student physicals and immunizations. She serves as the building coordinator for special health-related programs involving outside organizations. The Nurses responsibilities also include processing the initial paperwork needed to set up tutoring services for students homebound by long-term illness or injury.
