District Health Resource Information

  • A student's health status is directly related to his or her ability to learn. Because of this, Delaware provides a school nurse in every school to advocate for health care and promote a healthy school environment.

     


    The school nurse role is:

    •  To oversee the school health policies and programs.

    •  To provide school health services and health care to students and staff.

    •  To perform health screenings.

    •  To coordinate referrals to the medical home or private healthcare provider.

    •  To be the liason between school personnel, family,community and healthcare providers.

     


    Reminders for parents:

    * Students are not allowed to carry any medication, with the exception of an emergency inhaler, on them or in their book bags while at school.

    * Medications must be in the original containers with directions for use. Controlled substances must be brought to the nurse by an adult to be counted and signed for.

    * Any time during the school year that your student has a physical exam and/or immunizations please send a copy to the nurse. This will keep your child's medical record complete.
