Student Health Center
Welcome to the Student Health Center!
Our full-time school nurse is Mrs. Christine Ledwith during student school hours. Mrs. Ledwith is here to provide first aid and support to students who become ill or injured during the school day or who need health maintenance for a chronic or acute medical condition. Please notify our nurse of any health issues, diagnoses, and/or medications that could affect a student’s social, academic, or physical activities while at school. Mrs. Ledwith can be reached at 215-646-8815 or via email at email@example.com.
If a student becomes sick during the day she should report to the nurse who will determine the course of treatment. Parental/guardian permission and the nurse’s assessment are needed to allow a student to drive home. Students who do not feel well may rest in the nurse’s office for 15-20 minutes. If the student still does not feel well the student will be sent home.
A health history update and the medication consent form should be updated yearly. These documents are available below and are sent out with the end of the year report cards. Any over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol, Advil, and TUMS can be consented to by a parent or guardian. The medication consent form must be signed by both a parent/guardian and a licensed prescriber in order to receive any prescribed medications from the nurse. All prescription medications needed during the school day must be on the medication consent form and the medication should be in the original prescription bottle in order to be administered by the nurse. No student may take any medications, including over-the-counter medications, without the nurse being informed and the medication consent form being completed for each school year.
If your student receives any vaccines please send a copy in with your student or email a copy to our nurse.
Per the PA Department of Health, all students entering the 11th grade must have a physical exam done. All students in the state of Pennsylvania must be up to date with their immunizations per PA immunization requirements for students.
