The goal of the GSA Nurse’s Office is to keep students healthy and safe by addressing their mental, physical, emotional, social, and health needs in order to support optimal learning.
Our school nurse accomplishes this by educating our students; promoting good health and disease prevention; organizing flu shot clinics; monitoring immunizations; administering medication; testing vision; providing first aid; training staff; updating medical charts; coordinating care; promoting infectious disease control; promoting health equity by assisting families with outside resources/services; maintaining the school counselors’ schedule; leading the development of health policies; advocating for students; promoting self-management of disease and optimal health; and coordinating the annual blood drive.

Our prescreening app questions and paper prescreening tool were derived from this sheet, but this sheet also lists less common symptoms. This sheet says that if you have two or more of these less common symptoms, stay home. Though these less common questions are not part of our prescreening app and paper screening tool, many of these symptoms are a good reason to stay home even if they are not related to exposure to the coronavirus. Contact School Nurse Nikki Jaffray with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207)374-2808, ext. 116.
