    Our goal is to promote the health and well-being of each individual student and family.  We are here to support students with ongoing medical conditions and to provide acute care to new conditions that may arise throughout the school day. 

    We also complete the routine, mandated health screenings (vision, hearing, height/weight, scoliosis, etc.) as directed by the PA School Code.

    Please contact your student's nurse with any questions/concerns. 

    We hope to work together with our students, families, and school communities to assist each student in reaching their full potential physically, academically, and emotionally. 

    We truly believe that "Team work, makes the dream work."

  • Vision Assistance Available 


    Through the generosity and compassion of The Schuylkill United Way, in coordination with Eyeland, the See to Succeed Program is being piloted in the Minersville Area School District.

    Students in need of vision services (exam, corrective lenses) who do not have vision insurance are eligible to receive such services at no cost to the student/family.

    Please contact the School Nurse with questions or grant requests.  

    A referral from the nurse is required to participate in this program.
