ACPS is fortunate to have a registered nurse in every school. These experienced health care professionals are available during the entire school day to respond to the health care needs of students. In addition to the traditional school nurse activities, our school health program has several special projects which are positively impacting the health of our school community.
The N.C. Immunization Branch promotes public health through the identification and elimination of vaccine-preventable diseases like polio, hepatitis B, measles, chickenpox, whooping cough, rubella (German measles), and mumps. In 2001, the Branch incorporated an adult education component into the program to raise awareness of the agelessness of immunizations. The requirements for Surry County Schools can be found here, Immunization Requirements, and also in the Student/Parent Handbooks.
