Our mission is to provide direct nursing services to students and staff members to maximize health and wellness in the school community. All duties are performed in accordance with district/state board of education policies and procedures and state law regarding nurse practice.
The role of the clinic staff is not to diagnose diseases or illnesses, but to report signs and symptoms of health problems and encourage the individuals to contact their own family health care providers for diagnosis and treatment. Please remember, the school clinic is not meant to be used in place of your family health care provider.
The necessary medical forms required for the start of school will be available through Awty's electronic health record system, Magnus Health Portal.
