Health Office

nurse
The school nurse is available for routine care during the school day. Students who are ill or injured during the school day are sent to the nurse's office. Students may be administered first aid, may be sent home, or in extreme emergencies may be transported to a hospital. Parents are notified if a serious injury or illness occurs. A written report is kept of all accidents and health visits.

The responsibility for the health of each child is primarily that of the parent/guardian. The school nurse will strive to protect and improve the health of each child in cooperation with parents, making use of community resources and educational materials.

Healthy Classrooms

We have many students with severe food allergies and other health conditions, so please always check with your child's teacher before sending any food that will be shared with classmates.

Schools have an extraordinary influence on the development of lifelong eating habits and other healthy lifestyle patterns. The occasions when students can practice making healthy food choices at school serve as opportunities to reinforce the nutrition knowledge learned in the classroom. Additionally, school celebrations are an opportunity to put food in its proper place as a complement to the fun and not as the main event.

Please help your child make healthy choices for school snacks and special occasions.

Healthy Snack Ideas

  • Small cartons of milk, 100% juice, smoothies and water
  • Fresh fruit tray-whole, wedges, slices (dip in orange juice to retain color)
  • Fruit salad or fruit kabobs
  • Fresh vegetable tray (baby carrots, grape tomatoes, celery sticks, cucumber spears,
  • red and green bell pepper strips, cauliflower and broccoli florets) with reduced fat
  • ranch dip, yogurt-based dip, or hummus
  • Celery sticks with cream cheese or peanut butter topped with raisins
  • String cheese, cheese cubes or slices with whole grain crackers
  • Rice cakes with peanut butter, mini flavored rice cakes
  • Low fat pudding cups, low fat yogurt squeeze packs or cups, applesauce cups
  • Yogurt, fruit and granola parfaits
  • Finger sandwiches or sliced wrap sandwich pinwheels
  • Pretzels, low fat popcorn, trail mix, pita chips, small box of raisins
  • Animal crackers, graham crackers, oatmeal raisin cookies
  • Mini muffins, banana or pumpkin bread slices, granola bar slices

Non-Food Ways to Celebrate at School

  • Donate a book to the school library or classroom in honor of the child's birthday with a personalized gift acknowledgment plate inside
  • Bring stickers to share with classmates
  • Donate playground/physical activity equipment- jump ropes, balls etc
  • Make a special birthday crown to wear to school
  • Invite a special guest (parent, grandparent, etc) to read a story to the class
  • Bring a few baby or toddler photos in to share with classmates and have the child tell a brief 'life story'

Ask your child's teacher about bringing in snacks for the classroom.
