School Nurses

Pennsylvania School Code requires school districts to provide a certified school nurse for every 1,500 full-time students. Mars Area School District employs five school nurses, certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

If your child has a specific health concern that requires nursing services during school hours, contact the School Nurse in your child’s school building. Each School Nurse is trained to answer questions and address parental concerns
