Welcome to the School Health Office

Welcome to the Dwight D. Eisenhower School Nurse's page!

My name is Mrs. Hennessy and I am your school nurse. School nursing is a specialized practice of public health nursing. We protect and promote student health and facilitate normal development, to advance academic success. A school nurse supports student health through assessment, intervention, and follow-up for all children within the school setting. We address the physical, mental, emotional , and social needs of students, and support their achievement in the learning process.

As a school nurse I will be providing direct care for actual and potential health problems. I will promote health and a healthy school environment. I will promote health and safety through screenings each year. These screenings include height, weight, blood pressure, vision and hearing checks, and scoliosis screenings. I will also act as a liaison between school personnel, family, health care professionals and the community.

Please visit this page often for up to date important health information.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns regarding your child's health.
