The School Nurse's mission is to provide direct medical care to students and staff, leadership for the provision of health services, screening and referral for health conditions, promotion of a healthy school environment, and promotion of health education. The nurse also serves as a liaison between school personnel, family, heath care professionals, and the community.
One school nurse staffs the Trinity School clinic during school hours. She treats minor injuries, administers first aid, determines when a student needs to go home or needs more extensive medical care. She can dispense prescription and over-the-counter medications with appropriate parental and physician permission. She has current certifications in CPR and AED administration.
All medical information and permissions are administered through the secure, HIPPA-compliant school website Nurse's Office software or Rank One Sport, used by our athletic league, the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools.
