What We Do:
At FTCSC we recognize that good health is essential for effective learning. Each of our schools are staffed by a licensed nurse to meet the healthcare needs of our students during the school day.
Nurses do not make medical diagnoses, but are skilled in assessment, data collection, wellness promotion, health education, emergency care, referral, and communicable disease surveillance. The School Nurse will assess a student and request for the child to be picked up when it is deemed necessary. Please have a plan in place to have your child picked up within one hour of the nurse’s call. Our School Nurse program is staffed by Community Health Network and will provide limited services to all students, including but not limited to – screening for signs of illness, first aid/emergency care, referral to health providers in the community, nutrition services, health education, health screenings and immunization information. If you wish for your child not to be seen in the clinic please provide a written notice to the School Nurse.
This is a school clinic and all records are maintained by the school. There is no charge to you for the services received. If your child needs prescription or over the counter medicine, management of chronic health conditions or any health needs that require a physician order while in school, forms will need to be completed with your written permission in advance each year.
