The Williamsville Central School District maintains health offices in each of its schools, staffed with fully qualified, professionally licensed registered nurses. Professional registered nurses are not on duty after school hours but all members of the coaching staff are trained in first aid in accordance with State guidelines. Students remaining for after-school activities such as sports are under the supervision of an adult.

When an emergency arises, either during or after school hours, every effort is made to notify parents or the emergency contacts provided. In extreme emergencies and when parents or their designees are not able to be contacted, the student's health and safety may necessitate transportation by ambulance to a hospital.

The prevalence of chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and life-threatening allergies have been steadily rising in our school-age population.  It is important that established protocols be followed including guidance regarding food and food products in your child’s classroom.
