School nurses

Your school's nurse holds a current nursing license, is CPR certified and has taken a course on first aid. Our school nurses have a background of working with children, critical care nursing in the hospital (emergency room or ICU) and Public Health Nursing.

School Nurses

Nurses do an assessment of each student that comes into the clinic to determine their health concerns. Many times the parents are notified or the students may be able to return to class. If a medical emergency happens and a parent can't be located, the nurses will go to the hospital and stay with the student until a parent arrives. We work closely with parents who have children with medical conditions and welcome your call for any concerns. If your nurse is shared with other schools, the nurse will carry a cell phone to answer any questions or respond immediately to a medical emergency.

Optional Accident Insurance

As an option for our BCSS families, our school district is making a student accident insurance plan available for students at a low cost. The school district does not provide any type of health or accident insurance for injuries incurred by your child at school. We're offering this program because of trends in rising family health and dental insurance costs, increased deductibles, co-payments, or lack of health or dental insurance coverage.

Immunization Reminders for Middle and High Schoolers

To keep children in schools healthy, Georgia requires vaccines against certain diseases. Please see these reminders for required student immunizations.
