What is the Role of the School Nurse?

School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.  Adopted by the NASN Board of Directors February 2017.

Students with Health Needs

My Child Has Special Health Needs…

Your child may have special health needs that you would like us to know about. Chronic conditions such as asthma or diabetes may require your child to have medications in school for his/her safety. Your child may have special allergies that the school must be aware of, such as a peanut or bee sting allergy. School staff must be notified of chronic conditions to ensure that they are prepared to meet your child’s needs in the case of an emergency situation.

To discuss your child's health needs, please contact the school nurse at (517) 755-4964

Medications will be stored in the school office for your child’s safety.
