I'm excited to share the 2022-23 school year with you!

Health Promotion:


As we are entering the cold and flu season, this is a reminder of the best health practices to decrease the spread and transmission of viruses in PWCS schools.   


Please remember to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw used tissues in the trash.  If you don't have a tissue, cough, or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands.  Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, dry hands with a paper towel, and use the paper towel to turn off the faucet.  If soap and water are not available, hand sanitizers may also be used to preform hand hygiene.  Remember to stay home when you’re sick until at least 24 hours without a fever or the use of fever reducing medicine.  Together we can help stop the spread of germs that may make you and others ill

The Role of the School Nurse

School nurses are specialized instructional support personnel. They are the pivotal role that bridges healthcare and education. School Nurses are instrumental in removing health barriers for all students. They maintain and support students with physical and mental healthcare needs to support academic success. The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes the important role School Nurses play in promoting the optimal biopsychosocial health and wellbeing of school-aged children in the school setting.

Medical Paperwork for Students

If you need paperwork for a child with asthma, a child with allergies or if your student requires any other prescription/over-the-counter medication, please check the document folders below. If you are unsure which paperwork your child may need, please email Nurse Amy at HudakAE@pwcs.edu for clarification or further information.
