School Health Services
The major purposes of the School Health Program are to assess the health of each student, prevent disease, promote health and a healthy environment for all students and staff. Children who feel safe and are in good health are much more able to be successful learners. Knowing this the district’s School Health Program strives to attain and maintain a high level of health and safety for the school population. With this in mind the Board of Education appoints a School Medical Advisor, who works closely with the School Nurse Supervisor to advise and support the district’s school nurses in following state mandated school health regulations. Each of our eleven elementary and three middle schools has a full-time nurse. Three nurses and two health aides work at Greenwich High School. The nurses are basically “there” for the children, making sure that the children’s health is being protected, and helping them get the most out of their school experience. The school nurse in each school monitors required health and immunization assessments, plans nursing care to meet student health needs, and provides health care referrals, emergency care, and programs that promote a healthy environment.
