School Nurse

Health Office

The AOSR Health Office is open all day for students, faculty and staff members who need the assistance of the school nurse for acute illnesses while at school or for accidents and injuries that may occur during the school day. The Health Office is staffed by a full-time registered nurse. Office hours are from 8:30 to 17:00.

Student Health Information 

Student health information should be updated with the nurse annually , or as new situations arise using the Annual Health Form. This includes allergies, health conditions, medications, and vaccination records. Food allergies and sensitivities may require additional documentation to be shared with the cafeteria. Any health updates should be communicated directly to the school nurse at nurse@aosr.org. Medications are left locked in the Health Office and may only be administered by the school nurse, and must be accompanied by a signed medical authorization form

Vaccinations 

Italian law requires vaccination against 10 diseases: polio, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, Hepatitis B, haemophilus influenzae b, measles, mumps, rubella, and for children born in 2017 and later, varicella. Up to date information about the mandatory vaccination schedule can be found on the  European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

Sports

The Health Office works directly with the Athletic Director to maintain a sports program that is safe and fun for students. All student athletes, and students participating in after school activities must have a non-agonistica medical certificate/non-competitive sports physical completed by a physician annually.
