Notes from the Health Office


The Town of West Hartford provides the professional registered nursing services for this school through the West Hartford Non-Public School Health Program (CT Section 10-217a). The West Hartford Non-Public School Health Program is proud of our nursing services.  All schools are staffed full time by Connecticut Registered Nurses who have a broad background in a variety of clinical settings and public health. The majority have their Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and hold additional advanced degrees. The Town of West Hartford recognizes and supports our nurses in maintaining and continuing professional education, which enables us to provide exceptional care to students attending our schools. The nurse must follow the guidelines and mandates put forth by the State of Connecticut and the West Hartford Public Schools. Refer to the Important Health Information section on the bottom of this page for information on standing orders for over the counter medications and emergency medications.  Please keep this information for future reference.

Your school nurse is someone to get to know! They are essential to help assist your student with any health problem and should be seen as a friend and advocate.  Please know confidentiality is a professional responsibility that is strictly enforced.  If you have any questions or concerns please call or stop by to see the nurse in your school.
