"Children should be healthy to learn and learn to be healthy."
American Nurses Association Position Statement on School Nursing
We are incredibly blessed to have a full-time school nurse on Wesleyan's campus. In light of this, the school nurse, Nurse Shannon Moore, serves as one of the first points of contact for your child should they get sick or injured during the school day. Services provided include:
- first-aid care and consultation for students and staff
- health-related staff training
- wellness education
- on and off campus activities health information coordination

Wesleyan Christian Academy is an “Allergy Aware” facility. We work with staff, parents, and students to prevent life-threatening allergic reactions and ensure safety response measures are in place in the event a reaction does occur.
Wesleyan is NOT a nut-free facility as that is impossible to guarantee and may lead to a false sense of security. Children have many food, insect and substance allergies that can cause a severe reaction. We strive to educate staff and those individuals with severe allergies on how to avoid potential allergen containing foods/substances, how to recognize the signs of a reaction, and how to respond to a reaction.
Prevention is key! If your child has a potential life-threatening allergy, please contact the school nurse before the start of the school year so that safety measures are in place when your child arrives the first day of school. Have your child’s healthcare provider complete an emergency action plan and provide emergency medications as outlined in the school medication policy. Communication with teachers, coaches and the school nurse is an important part of prevention and is welcomed.
Parents of elementary students are asked to provide “safe snacks” to have on hand. Unlabeled food which is brought into the classroom to be shared at parties should not, as a general rule, be eaten by a child with food allergies. You may also wish to complete a “Diet Modification Request Form”. This form is particularly helpful for students with dairy allergies who may be allowed to eat some dairy foods but not others. Turn the completed form into the nurse or child’s teacher.
Each student is covered under a Student Accident Insurance Plan for injuries that occur during school activities. This is a secondary policy that may cover out-of-pocket expenses after your primary insurance claim has been filed. After all statements and receipts have been collected, please contact Tom Eller, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
