All Westfield school health clinics are staffed by a Registered Nurses provided by Riverview Health. The health clinic is intended to provide care for students who become ill or injured during the school day, as well as provide nursing care for students that require special medical procedures during school hours. In order for the school nurse to care for your student its important to provide updated information. Every school year the medical information and permission to give medications must be updated in Powerschool. All previous permissions expire and are removed at the end of the school year.
Our school nurses are dedicated and passionate in their work of advancing the well-being, academic success and lifelong achievement and health of students. The nurses work to promote positive responses to normal growth and development, promote health and safety, identify and respond to actual and potential health problems, and actively work with students and families to help adapt, self-manage, and self-advocate in the school environment.
