你好! I wanted to introduce myself to those that I have not met yet- my name is Aimee Osland and I am the school nurse at 西西雅图 高中. This will be my 3rd year at WSHS and my 9th year as a school nurse. Working together, we can make this a safe and healthy year for students and staff.
I am looking forward to working with you all this school year! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
COVID Testing at 西西雅图 高中
COVID-19测试: We are excited to offer COVID-19 testing in collaboration with 华盛顿 State Department of Health (DOH) and the Health Commons Project. We are starting with testing when symptoms arise or following known exposure – referred to as diagnostic testing. Testing will help us reduce the spread of COVID and will reduce lost instructional time for students.
度的 学会回报 testing program follows a “go slower to go fast” philosophy. By implementing diagnostic testing first, we can have an immediate positive impact in serving our school community while learning how to best expand. Once we get diagnostic testing launched, we will explore a more robust 2021-22 screening program including for students who aren’t vaccinated or are at higher risk.

Prepare for Your Student’s Health at School
华盛顿 state law requires that school staff and parents plan together for the safe care of their child throughout the school day.
Please report any health issue your child has that could impact safety and learning at school to the school nurse. You can contact the nurse directly by phone or email.
Medication at School
If your child needs to take any type of medication during the school day, even if it’s temporary, a medication form must be completed by the child’s health care provider and signed by parent. Authorization for Medications Taken at School (multiple languages)
