The primary role of the school nurse is to support student learning.

The Nurses of Yorktown Central School District accomplish this by implementing strategies that promote student health and safety. Schools need to promote the health of every child in order to raise educational achievement.

The nurse serves as the coordinator of the health services program and provides nursing care as deemed appropriate. In order to serve students effectively it is essential for parents to inform the health office of all special health needs such as food/insect/latex allergies, asthma, diabetes, visual/hearing or speech deficits, need for medication during the day, need for special aids from your physician such as crutches, walkers or wheelchairs, either on a temporary or permanent basis, etc.  This information is very important to a successful experience in school.

Yorktown Central School District will use the emergency contact information you provide to the district. Changes can be made on Parent Portal. Please keep all contact information updated!!!   It is imperative that we are able to reach you in the event of an emergency.

Please view the contact information link on the left for specific health information and requirements pertaining to your child's school. Contact your school nurse with any health issues, questions, or concerns.

When deciding whether to send your child to school, the following guidelines may be helpful. Please keep your child home if:

  • A fever (100 degrees or higher) is present or has been in the past 24 hours.
  • The child has a cold with a heavy nasal discharge and/or a persistent cough.
  • The child has a sore throat.
  • The child vomits before school.
  • The child has an unidentified rash.
  • The child is tired and generally not well.
  • Please note: If your child has a fever of 100 degrees F or higher, he/she should remain home until your child is symptom free for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or Ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil). It is strongly recommended by the CDC that you do not give your child Aspirin for flu-like symptoms due to potential risk of Reyes' Syndrome.
