Health

There is a registered nurse in the school at all times.  She provides care in the event of an illness or injury and daily management of chronic health problems.  She also maintains health and attendance records.  Parents must notify the school nurse by 8:20 a.m. on the first day of an absence and each day thereafter.

An annual physical exam by a doctor, along with proof of all vaccinations, is due on the first day of school.  These are required for the child to attend school and participate in sports.
