The Junior School Nurse's Office is located in Harker Hall and is staffed Monday to Thursday from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm and Fridays from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. At the Senior School, Ms. Bodutch, Head of Student Health, is available Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

If your son requires care beyond what the nurses can provide, parents will be contacted. Nurses refer to the medical information provided to the School, so please ensure this information is kept up-to-date by contacting Student Health.

List of 2 items.

  • Allergies and Anyphalaxis

    The School is nut-aware and makes every effort to minimize exposure to allergens at school. Students with a history of Anaphylaxis should be identified and carry an EpiPen injector at all times. The School provides EpiPens to be used in case of an emergency and educates teachers on how to use them.
  • Concussion Management

    Student-athletes can suffer concussions during the school year while participating in sports and activities. Please report all concussions to Student Health and your son’s Head of Grade or homeroom teacher. Students suspected to have suffered a concussion or who have reported symptoms suggestive of a concussion will be referred for a medical exam. When necessary, the nursing staff, athletic coaches, or trainers will contact parents to make the referral or report the injury. If you are concerned your son may have suffered a concussion, please have him assessed by a doctor and inform Student Health.

    All students diagnosed with a concussion will be considered off-games until cleared by the family or emergency physician and a medical clearance note is provided. While your son recovers, symptoms can interfere with school performance and limit participation in activities. Your son’s Head of Grade or homeroom teacher will be notified of these limitations, and your son will be supported as needed. All students wanting to return to games will need to present a doctor’s note to Student Health, clearing them for play. The School follows Return to Play guidelines and a Return to Learn plan. Students who continue to report concussions or are observed to have ongoing concussion symptoms will be referred back to their doctor.
