School Nurses play an essential role in keeping children healthy, safe, and ready to learn. Student’s health and well-being have a direct impact on school performance and educational achievement. Health care services in the Dennis-Yarmouth Regional School district are provided by Registered Nurses. The School Nurse supervises health office activities and assures compliance with regulatory standards set by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

The comprehensive school health program includes protocols to prevent the spread of communicable diseases, screening procedures, emergency care, and nursing assessment and intervention of student illness or injury during school hours. A school physician serves as an advisor to the School Nurses.

Please feel free to contact our Health Care Team with any questions or updates regarding your child’s medical concerns. Also please contact your school nurse if your Emergency Contact Information has changed.
