Health Services Overview

We wish to acquaint you with the health services available to the children of the Wissahickon School District. These services are intended to help maintain the health of each child at an ideal level in order that they may receive maximum benefit from the educational programs in our schools. With the help of the parents and the health care providers of the community, each young person should develop a maturity for their own health. By the time of high school graduation, they should understand the value of regular medical supervision. Our purpose is to work with you for the benefit of your child.

The medical department of the Wissahickon School District includes a consulting physician, certified school nurses, consulting dentist and other trained personnel. We are charged with responsibilities in a number of areas, each which has an effect on the well-being of your child.

Please feel free to contact your school nurse if any questions arise.
