 Home / About Us / Health

A public Health Nurse is provided by the CSSS one day a week. The nurse is available to the students in order to provide information regarding health matters and to help deal with serious health problems.

The school is not responsible for accidents. The nurse cannot prescribe medication. Students cannot be dismissed by the nurse; this must be done at the school's main office on the recommendation of the Health Service.

It is essential that the school be informed of the telephone numbers of parents or relatives to be reached in case of an emergency. It is essential that parents inform the school in writing of any medical problems that might affect your child's participation in school life.

SOCIAL WORKER

The role of the school social worker is to provide help and support to students who are experiencing personal hardship, difficult family situations and/or social problems.  Their main task is to intervene within the family in an effort to prevent the deterioration of the difficult situation and to help reduce the hardship being experienced by the student.  Specific problems related to conflicts between the student and his/her family, behavior difficulties, adaptation problems, parental neglect and other issues can be addressed by the social worker.  Specific assistance can also be provided solely to the student in cases where the student requires this support.  Students under the age of 14 must have parental consent before they can receive the support of the social worker.  In all cases, the social worker can provide intervention within the family, with the individual student or within the school's environment. 

You can reach her at school in room 102F or at extension 8323 or at:
