Health Services

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 of any changes in health, medication, or contact information.  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.
