2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR INFORMATION FROM THE MEDICAL ROOM
As a school community Scranton Prep, strives to make your students’ daily experience here a positive one. In that line of thought, a healthy student is able to learn, is happy, and can immerse themselves in all aspects of everyday life here at Prep. As the nurse at school, I am available throughout the day to assist your student when they are not feeling up to par, when they may need medication and, of course, to respond to any unforeseen situations that may arise. As your student makes their journey through Prep, I look forward to meeting them and assisting them to stay healthy and well.
For incoming freshmen-a copy of your students’ most recent immunizations is required prior to the first day of school, as well as a physical exam by your family physician. PIAA physical forms can be used for this requirement, please see that the nurse gets a copy.
