“Every student deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.”
The Whole Child Tenets
The Masconomet Health Services Department strives to promote optimal wellness in all students in order to advance their sense of well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement. To this end, the nurses provide assessment and treatment for both acute and chronic illnesses and injuries during the school day, intervening with actual and potential health issues. They promote health and safety; provide case management services and strive to develop and maintain a strong link between all parent, school, and community resources to increase self-management and self-advocacy skills.
