The goal of the Avonworth Nursing Staff is to provide our students with the best possible care.  In order to do so we must keep each student’s health information up-to-date.  Please update your child's building nurse with any health and medication changes.  If a nurse refers your child to a doctor we would appreciate a follow-up phone call or email so we can track trends and stay alert to potential problems.
