The nurses at Welsh Valley care about the health and safety of the Welsh Valley community and play an essential role in keeping children healthy, safe, and ready to learn. All students have access to a certified school nurse and an all RN support staff every day. Certified school nurses are responsible for reporting vaccine compliance to the state, overseeing and reporting state mandated health exams and health screening, and case managing students with serious health concerns and identified disabilities. In addition to assessing children for illness and injury during the school day, school nurses provide daily nursing services and treatments to students who are medically fragile or who deal with chronic health issues such as asthma, life-threatening allergies, diabetes, epilepsy, and mental health concerns.
Pennsylvania School Health Law requires medical/dental examinations, immunizations, and health screening for all students at the intervals cited below. Additional information and LMSD forms can be found on the district website at http://www.lmsd.org/departments/health/resources.
