Nurse Office  

The APSD is presently served by ten nurses. Every day these competent and capable professionals work tirelessly to improve the overall quality of life and health of our students and their families.

 
            The services provided by our school nurses are almost too numerous to list. In general, however, our school nurses:
·                              care for the medically-fragile children in our schools
·                              provide counsel and answers to the health-related questions of our students and staff
·                              promote healthy lifestyles and give “good health tips” to students and staff
·                              serve as front-line responders for health-related and injury emergencies in our schools
·                              train our staff how to respond and react in the event of medical emergencies
·                              teach good hygiene practices to our students
·                              determine when a child may be too ill to stay at school
