School nurses work under written orders of the school physician for first aid. School nurses are prohibited by law to diagnose injuries or illnesses. Please do not send your child to the nurse for diagnosis. We believe that decisions regarding the need for medical care rests finally with the parents. Therefore, parents are always contacted to take the child home or to the doctor as the need arises. Transportation is the responsibility of the family.
Please feel free to call the nurse anytime for information. We look forward to a continued partnership with parents working toward healthy and strong Great Valley School District children.
