Health & wellness at Regis

The Regis School of the Sacred Heart is deeply committed to fostering the physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing of our community. We understand the importance of supporting and guiding the health, social, and emotional lives of boys. The Health and Wellness Departments work collaboratively to uphold the values and morals in alignment with the Five Goals of Sacred Heart education.


Health clinic at Regis
 

Regis has a registered nurse that staffs the school clinic. The school nurse, faculty and staff are trained in First Aid, CPR and AED use.  The nurse provides care and education to the students, faculty, staff and parents regarding health and safety.  The nurse is responsible for maintaining immunization records, performing health screenings, providing care for injuries and illness, assisting parents and children coping with chronic illness, administering medications as needed and tracking infectious outbreaks.  Our goal is for students to be able to maximize their time in school in a safe and healthy manner.  Regis has adopted Magnus Health System for managing all our health records.

If your child has any of the above symptoms in the morning before coming to school, please keep him at home.
