LibaryThe Sweet Home School District’s school nurse coordinates health service programs, such as:  health records and vision screenings, immunization clinics (and data) and first aid.  She examines children referred by teachers, makes home visits when students’ problems are health related and when absenteeism is suspected as health related.  She also monitors medically fragile students. 

The school nurse is a liaison with the state, county and community health and social agencies; coordinates the District’s occupational therapy and physical therapy programs and writes health related Individual Education Programs.  She is a resource to teachers and sometimes is a guest speaker for health classes.
