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.

The Middle School nurse is available during school hours for direct care services, care coordination and confidential consultation.  Please call 781-786-5620 or 5627 with any questions, concerns or changes in your child’s health status.
