Health Policy

Health services are provided by the Mt. Lebanon School District. This year, Mrs. Deanna Hess will be at St. Bernard School one day a week. A fully equipped health suite is located in our building. In addition to routine first aid, the school nurse dispenses medications, does vision screening, scoliosis screening, height and weight screening, hearing tests and health-related presentations. She supplies any needed information and guidance to the faculty. All medical records are handled and updated by the nurse. As a result, an annual confidential list of specific health care needs among the students is prepared and distributed to the faculty.
When necessary, external health care authorities come into the school to educate our students on various topics such as drug awareness, dental health and nutrition. A doctor is available for medical examinations and comprehensive appraisals upon the students’ entry into school and into the Junior High level.

All individual classrooms are supplied with a first aid kit.
