Health Services

Welcome to the Penn-Trafford Health Services Page!

Each of our eight schools is overseen by a Certified School Nurse (CSN). 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.
 
 
 
Please visit our COVID-19 page for the latest updates on the pandemic.
