    Message from Cheryl Kennedy:
      

    I am here to provide assistance in evaluating present or potential health problems to assure that a student’s learning potential will not be lessened by physical or mental health obstacles. Providing the essential liaison between the health and educational needs of pupils with chronic illness, handicaps, psychological problems and contagious disease are among the major responsibilities I have as the school health assistant. My goal is to assist pupils who become ill or injured at school and to get the student back to class as soon as possible to receive the maximum benefit from their educational experience. It is not my intent to diagnose a problem, but rather to screen for potential health problems and to refer the students and parents to the appropriate resources.  
    My other responsibilities are: 

    Assist and/or conduct routine vision, hearing, height and weight for BMI
    Administer student medications in accordance with the Physician and MCSD
    Provide comfort measures/first aid to students with minor illness
    Notify parent and administration if student appears acutely ill or injured
    Implement policy on exclusion and readmission of students in regard to communicable disease
    Maintain confidentiality at all times
    Maintain CPR, AED , First Aid and EPI-pen administration                                             
    Participates in school safety procedures and programs
