School Nurse/Health Offices

Each of our four schools has a dedicated school nurse. Students may go to the Health Office for health information, advice, medical questions, illness, medication administration, physical exams and assessments, care of injuries or short rest periods for headache or minor discomforts. Students who do not feel improved or are unable to attend classes will be sent home. Learn MORE about school nurses »

The New York State Dignity for All Students Act

The New York State Dignity for All Students Act (DASA or Dignity Act) went into effect on July 1, 2012, in order to further support students within a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination, intimidation, taunting, harassment and bullying. Under the Dignity Act, harassment is defined as "creation of a hostile environment by conduct or verbal threats, intimidation or abuse that has or would have the effect of unreasonably and substantially interfering with a student's educational performance, opportunities or benefits, or mental or physical well-being."

The Internet can be a great resource for your child. It can be used for research, communication with teachers and other children, interactive games etc. By being able to punch in a few letters on the keyboard, your child can literally access the World Wide Web. That access can, however, pose hazards and this section offers important resources on internet safety. Learn MORE about internet safety »

Food Services & the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act

School lunches provide one-third of the recommended dietary intake for calories, protein and vitamins A and C, iron and calcium. On average a meal contains less than 30 percent of calories from fat and less than 10 percent from saturated fat.

In addition, eating a good breakfast is beneficial to our students. In fact, the USDA has determined that eating breakfast helps improve math, reading and standardized test scores; improves memory and  performance; and decreases behavioral issues. Learn MORE about Food Services »
