Welcome to the Upper Darby High School Health Office :)
Please call if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child. Our goal is to keep your child in class and at optimal health.
Students with emergencies or new injuries are always welcome at the nurse. Injuries which occurred at home and other medical needs such as colds, sore throats
and headaches should be seen during the student's lunchtime. THE DISTRICT DOES NOT SUPPLY ANY MEDICATIONS.
When a student is in need of medications he/she needs to bring in the medications as well as a parent and a Doctors note. The required documentation forms
can be found on the district website under Pupil Services then look for forms.
State mandated screenings are conducted through the year. Height, weight, vision and BMI screenings are conducted annually in all grades.
Additional hearing screenings are done in grade 11. The Pennsylvania Depart of Health requires that every student in 11th grade have a physical on file in their heath record.
Please feel free to contact the office at anytime during the school year especially if your child has a special health concern or health issue.
Thank you and have a healthy, safe school year!!
