cartoon nurseHEALTH SERVICES AT BLACK FOREST HILLS

The school nurse at BFHE addresses the health needs of all students and school staff. Plans of action are implemented to ensure the safety of all the students with health concerns. The nurse delegates to office staff, teachers and other unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) the general safety plan involving basis first aid training and the care of sick children, who come to the health office with a health need; in the event of the nurses’ absence or during school field trips. Office staff and other UAP’s are supplied with a Health Services Manual that specifies actions in the instance of various medical situations.

The school nurse may be reached by phone at 720-884-8904 for any health issues or concerns.

SCHOOL VISION AND HEARING SCREENING

Vision and hearing screenings are conducted for students in their schools according to the mandated guidelines from the Colorado Department of Education. These guidelines indicate that students in kindergarten, first, second, third and fifth receive these screenings. Because of the important connection between a student’s academic achievement and their vision and hearing, parents are encouraged to observe their student and seek a medical evaluation for changing or significant concerns.

Complete diagnostic audiology evaluations are done by the district’s Audiology Department for all mandated students. Students whose hearing screening results indicate a potential problem and given a hearing referral should see their doctor.
