Each school in the District has a full-time registered nurse whose primary job is to support learning. While we nurses do not diagnose illness or attend to injuries that have occurred outside the school day, we can, and often do, refer for potential health-related problems.
Please contact your school’s nurse as soon as possible if you have concerns about your child’s health, or there is a change in health status or a new diagnosis. Together you can discuss the need for a health plan and/or potential accommodations. See your school’s website link below for additional information on how to contact your building nurse.
