The school nurse is responsible for protecting and promoting the health of all students. This is accomplished by: maintaining student health records; assessing for communicable disease and arranging for the treatment and exclusion of these students; providing proper emergency care for all people injured or ill at school; serving as a health education resource to students and staff; including classroom teaching on health topics; administering medication upon physician’s and parent’s request; developing individualized care plans and emergency plans for students with medical issues; protecting the privacy of protected health information; identifying and reporting suspected or actual child abuse cases; training staff annually on universal precautions and blood borne pathogens; reviewing immunization records and ensuring compliance with State and Federal regulations; providing vision and hearing screening; and providing developmental assessments, including height and weight analysis.
At St. Agnes Academy, we strive to promote the religious, academic, physical, social, and emotional growth and development of all of our students. To accomplish this goal, the district has implemented and continues to improve a comprehensive school wellness program at all levels.
Our Wellness Program includes the following elements:
• Promotion of a healthy school environment— a safe and nurturing climate where all students are known by the staff
• Nutritional standards for all foods provided in school
• Student services—coordinated programs of health care, student assistance programs and mentoring.
• Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment—a coordinated K-8 program about healthy relationships, bullying and self-awareness.
All foods available for sale during the school day will comply with the National School Lunch Act, the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans, with attention to Life Threatening Food Allergies.
All students at St. Agnes Academy will receive physical education/health/wellness instruction each year, with additional opportunities for physical activity through daily, supervised recess after lunch for all students and an additional supervised morning recess for students in grades PK-3.
