School Health Services
Health matters. That's why I am here to help provide care, information and a safe place to learn, study, play and grow. On this page, you will learn about health services offered through BBCPS, important health news/alerts for our community, and other resources to help our school community be a healthy place.
Children are so special, and must be handled with care. It is during these formative years of their lives when they learn the importance of wellness and good hygiene. I have a passion for not only caring for children, but for also being that person they come to for advice. Every student needs an individual they can talk to, or come to when they are not feeling well.
As a School Nurse, I attend to the physical, mental and emotional needs of our students. I care for health necessities of the children and staff, through administering medical treatment, providing health education, identifying problems in student health development and serving as a resource person to the school in health instruction. In addition, I serve as a liaison between the home and the school, supporting parents in the process of caring for the health of their child.
Each year BBCPS offers dental, vision and hearing screening. Scoliosis screening is also offered. The school nurse is available for consultation about any health concerns and is able to assist with health referrals. For parents who qualify, vouchers for eyeglasses may also be provided.
