Health Office is open to all students and staff members at FAMS. We do screenings of height, weight , blood pressure, vision and hearing of all students during the first half of the year. In March and April the 7th graders are screened for Scoliosis .
According to Board Policy and State of New Jersey the nurse can only give Medicine with a prescription from a doctor and permission in writing from the parent/guardian even for over the counter medication.
The Health office is a resource for both parents and students. Middle school has many challenges and added responsibilities but with these comes growth academic, social and physical.
Teaching and learning can be the key to a long productive life. I believe the focus of school nursing should always be about providing the students with quality care, but also teaching them to care for themselves.
