Health Care Professional - Sami Dove   sdove@eastwakeacademy.org

 

As the school nurse, my job is to promote health and wellness and provide education on health topics to the students, staff and EWA families.

 

Some of the things that I can do for your student include:

  • Vision screenings

  • Diabetes monitoring

  • Blood pressure checks

  • Provide basic first aid

  • Administer medication provided by the family if accompanied by a signed medication form (available at each house office)

  • Check for temperature

  • Assess injuries, skin rashes, etc.

  • Teach students about puberty (5th grade curriculum), abstinence (7th grade curriculum) and provide one-on-one information on these topics as developmentally appropriate for other students

  • Teach about healthy living, lifestyle choices, and promote health

  • Review immunizations records and ensure that they are up to date

  • Help find resources for health benefits, assistance to purchase medications, and other financial resources that may be available

Some things I cannot do:

  • Give medication to students (even Tylenol, Ibuprofen) without a signed note

  • Diagnose sickness, illness, rashes, cause of fevers, etc.
