Welcome to the Penn-Trafford Health Services Page!

Schools may also be staffed by a Registered Nurse (RN) in addition to the CSN.  If your child has special health care needs, requires medications or health treatments during the school day, and/or has a chronic health condition, please contact your school nurse to discuss.
