Our health clinics provide care for Lower, Middle, and Upper School students during school hours. School nurses Rebecca Heck
, RN, and Kendall Hrabak
, RN, will triage every student to assess their medical needs and communicate all significant findings with parents/guardians.
Steward has two clinic locations on campus: one in the Lower School and one in the Athletic Center.
The school clinics are staffed by registered nurses and operate under guidelines specified by the Code of Virginia, State Board of Nursing, Virginia Department of Health, and the Virginia Department of Education, and are directed by The Steward School’s Department of Human Resources. The school clinic works closely with the student, family, and school personnel to meet the physical, mental, emotional, and social needs of each student. The function of the school nurses is to attend to students’ health needs.
Parents/guardians can help ensure the well-being of all our students by:
- Notifying the school nurse of any health concerns or chronic health conditions that may affect your child’s school day.
- Following state guidelines regarding immunizations.
- Encouraging good hygiene/hand washing practices at home and school.
- Keeping an ill child home and letting the school know if the illness is contagious.
