Each health room is staffed by a qualified health aide who has annual CPR/First Aide training and specific medication training for school employees. The health aides are also knowledgeable regarding immunization requirements, common health conditions, communicable diseases and growth/development. They are available to answer your questions and are able to get in touch with the School Nurses at all times.
