Health Services

The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff is of utmost importance. The Health Office is staffed every day by one of four registered nurses who see to the daily health needs of our students.  In addition, Cheltenham Township provides a school nurse to conduct screenings and oversee medical, dental, and immunization records.  Our Health and Medication Policy was formulated according to the guidelines of Cheltenham Township and includes a strict Food Allergen Policy.  Families with students having special health needs work closely with the Health Office to develop a Care Plan that best meets the child’s individual needs. Teachers are confidentially informed and implement measures that affect children while in the classroom.  Designated staff are trained in CPR and the use of AED’s (Automatic External Defibrillator).  Wellness season, scheduled annually, taps resources from outside the community to address physical, mental, and social health issues.
