A child's ability to learn is influenced by his or her health. The BH-BL school nurses provide both health assessment and health information to enhance the quality of education and the quality of life for our students.
The role of the school nurse is to assess a student’s condition through objective and subjective data in order to make appropriate decisions and recommendations to parents/guardians about illnesses or injuries occurring during the school day and when/ if to seek out medical evaluation and treatment. Please do not send students to school to be diagnosed.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the nurse at your child’s school.

If you suspect your child may be ill, please do NOT send him or her to school. We are committed to reducing the spread of infectious conditions and are not equipped to manage a sick child at school for any extended period of time.

Some other considerations:
Your child’s physician is the best source of information and advice in regard to your child’s health or illness. You are also welcome to contact your school nurse.
We rely on the Student Emergency Information Update form to provide up to date contact information for family, emergency contacts in case we are unable to reach parents/guardians for students, and a brief statement of any pertinent health issues that the nurse should be aware of.
