The Department of Education a confirmed today that they will provide us with a full-time nurse, starting in August.
We are creating a medical office on the 2nd floor, with a refrigerator for medicines, an exam table and other needed equipment. The nurse will be available to our students from 8 to 4 daily.
In addition your child's teacher will know about any serious health conditions and (where appropriate) be trained about interventions such as epi-pens and asthma inhalers.
The nurse in the picture above grew up to become a famous mathematician. You can read more about her story here
