HEALTH SERVICES

A District Nurse assists the health clerks in providing services to help students to lead healthier lives.  These services include screening tests, management of medications, referrals and some basic first aid services.  

Every year, parents/guardians will update their student's health conditions through the data confirmation process in Aeries. This will alert the staff of medical concerns, allergies, and medications used at home.  

Student visits to the health office will be recorded their medical log in Aeries. Parents may refer to this log in their Aeries Parent Portal, but will be contacted directly if any visits requiring more attention than minor first aid.
