St. Anthony School has a health room available to students during the hours of school. The Health and Safety Coordinator contacts a student’s parent or guardian when they are ill. All medication is dispensed from the health room. The Health and Safety Coordinator coordinates all the health screenings and emergency drills. As a part of our disaster preparedness plans, the Health and Safety Coordinator maintains a disaster container on the school grounds.
