Mission Statement

  • We support the vision of the Weston Public Schools by actively collaborating with parents, faculty, staff and the community to advance the well-being, academic success and lifelong learning of our students.
  • While respecting individuality, the school nurses facilitate positive responses to normal development; promote the health and safety of all students and staff; intervene in the case of actual or potential health and/or emotional problems; and provide case management.
  • We aspire to build student and family capacity for adaption, self-management, self-advocacy and learning, thus assisting our students to become productive citizens of the increasingly diverse and global society.
