Health & Wellness
The on-campus Health & Wellness Center provides 24-hour nursing services and comprehensive care management, including pediatric care, psychiatric services, routine medical and dental treatment, and nutritional counseling. We are staffed with licensed practical nurses, psychiatrists and a registered nurse, who also works in the School Nurse Office during school hours.
Daily and Annual Wellness for Residents
Health & Wellness staff work collaboratively with parents/guardians, students, teachers and physicians to provide a healthy environment for all.
The school nurse administers first aid care and treatment, promotes health education and provides nursing assessments, as well as annual vision and hearing screenings for eligible students. Parents/guardians are notified if a child’s screening test results require further evaluation by a physician. A dentist and dietitian are on campus twice weekly.
Every effort is made by all members of the Green Chimneys community to reduce the spread of illness on our campus by encouraging and modeling hand washing before and after meals, activities, and contact with animals. Bathrooms are checked by staff after every use to ensure a hygienic atmosphere for the next user. Proper hand washing techniques are supervised if necessary. Hand sanitizers are available campus-wide.
