Friendship. Scholarship. Sportsmanship.
Greensboro Day School's experienced team of nursing professionals provides health care, first aid, and medical support during the school day. Their goal is to optimize a child's school performance utilizing their medical expertise and the information that parents provide regarding their child's health.
While your child is on the GDS campus, the health room is open for anything health related, from small bumps and bruises to significant health concerns.
The Health Room and the services it provides are an important part of a child's life at school, especially in the event of illness or injury. Our Health Room nurses get to know Greensboro Day School students and provide continuity of care as your child transitions from one grade to the next.
The Health Room also provides vision and scoliosis screenings for students as needed.
Health Forms must be completed annually for each student enrolled at Greensboro Day School.
All new students must provide an immunization record to your child's division prior to the beginning of the school year. Immunization records can be obtained from your pediatrician's office or your child's previous school.
Beginning July 2020, Greensboro Day School will move to Magnus Health.
If your child has an appointment with their Healthcare Provider prior to July 8, 2020, please download the applicable forms for the provider's signature. This would include forms for the Sports Physical, Medication Authorization, Kindergarten Assessment, and care plans for chronic illnesses.
