Student health is essential to optimal learning. Health services are available to all students within Cornell School District. Registered nurses on staff make every effort to maximize each student's learning potential by removing health-related barriers to learning. When meeting the student's health needs during the school day, our nurses also use the opportunity to teach students to make smart choices that will benefit their overall health.
The following are a few simple regulations, which are requested of students. By following these regulations, we are able to maintain the the safety and health of all students here at Cornell. Please refer to the Student Code of Conduct / Student Handbook for more information regarding Student Health Services.
- The school nurse is available for any student who feels ill or is injured during the school day. Unless the situation is an emergency, students should report to their classroom and then be dismissed to the nurse's office with a pass.
- Students who need to go home because of illness or injury, must see the nurse and have her call their parents. In the event that the nurse is unavailable, students should report to the office.
- All medications must be taken to the nurse's office.
If you have questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with the school nurse, please see the contact information below.
