The nurses play an essential role in the daily and chronic health needs of our students both as a medical professional and as an advocate for the safety and health of all students and staff. Recognizing the physical, emotional, and social needs of the students enable the nurse to advocate and educate for their needs to promote optimal learning in the school setting.
All students are required by Ohio law to have an Emergency Medical Authorization Form on file which needs to be completed each academic year by a parent/guardian. The school must have emergency telephone numbers on file where the parent/guardian(s) can be reached during the school day. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to keep the school office informed of any changes to the contact information (phone number, email, etc.).
