Nursing Services

The Atha Road clinic is open during school hours to provide healthcare services to our students and teachers to ensure healthy learning environments. Our nurses are available to clean and bandage wounds, dispense medication, assist teachers in teaching health topics, monitor illnesses in the school and much more. Nurses provide health services that increase school attendance and prevent and control the spread of communicable diseases. They are responsible for verification of immunizations and providing hearing/vision screenings. They manage students with chronic health conditions and administers specialized services to students. In partnership with our school, parents and district, our nurses strive to increase student achievement by promoting and advocating for the health, wellness and safety of all students.

In order to provide the best healthcare to all students, please let us know if your child has any of the following: asthma, allergies (food, medicine, insect, environmental), seizures or any other medical condition that could affect their school day.
