Student health and safety are important to all Reading Community Schools staff members. While parents have the basic responsibility for the health of their children, the district’s school nurses work to assist families and health care providers in promoting and maintaining the well-being of Reading students.

The goal of the school nurse is to assist students in attaining their optimum physical and emotional health so they are able to achieve academic success. The school nurses of Reading Community Schools work toward this goal by providing:

  • Screening programs
  • Health counseling and education
  • Communicable disease control
  • First aid and safety
  • Family assistance

To assist school nurses in achieving this goal, parents and guardians are encouraged to share information with school nurses regarding student health history, serious illness or accidents, the presence of a fracture, the need for care, mental health issues, and additional screenings a student may need.
