Welcome to the Upper Darby High School Health Office.  Please call if you have any questions or concerns about your child's health.


Our goal is to keep students in class and at optimal health. Students with emergencies or new injuries should be sent to the nurses' office.  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 Nurses' Office does not supply any medication.

State mandated health screenings are conducted at your child's school each year.  Vision, height, weight, and BMI screenings are conducted annually in all grades.  Hearing screenings are done in grade 11.  The Pennsylvania Department of Health requires that every student in grade 11 have a physical on file in their health record.  Feel free to contact one of the School Nurses' throughout the school year, especially if your child has a special health concern or health issue.  

A nurse can be reached at 610-622-7000 ext.2376 or ext.2378.
