At the Ketterer Charter School, our certified school nurse works in close communication with parents and school staff in an attempt to encourage attendance, ensure safety, teach healthy habits, and promote an atmosphere for learning. The school nurse is delegated the responsibility to provide first aid and emergency services, maintain immunization records, administer medication as ordered by a physician, and implement the Pennsylvania Mandated School Health Program.
