Salem Public Schools
School Health Services

Director of Nursing and Health Services
Paula Dobrow RN, MSN, NCSN

Welcome to the 2015 - 2016 school year

Mission Statement
Salem School Nurses are registered nurses certified by the
Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
as having the professional education and expertise to function in
the complex system of education and health.

School Nurses are integral members of a child's educational team enhancing
the educational process by promoting good health for optimal learning.

Salem School Nurses uphold the National Association of School Nurses mission:

"To advance the practice of school nursing and provide leadership in the delivery
of quality health programs in the school community."
Our goal is to bring you updated health information
as it pertains to children attending the Salem Public Schools.
Each web page is designed to give you information for elementary, middle and high schools.
You may download forms for medication, physicals and health histories.

The immunization law is required to be followed by all
school districts throughout the State of Massachusetts.
By doing this we provide each child a healthy school environment.

Our medication policy is set by the recommendations of the Department of Public Health.
Please take a moment to read the policy to understand
what is required if your child needs medication during the school day
(this policy covers prescription and over the counter medication).
