The Health Center is located in the Madden Gym. The nurse is available to students and families from 7:30 AM-3:15 PM. All medical information should be sent directly to the Health Center Office. You can fax confidential information directly to us at (401) 528-2172. Any student who feels ill during the day should go to the health center to be evaluated by the nurse. If the nurse sends the student home the parents/guardians will be notified. Students are not allowed to leave school because of illness without seeing the nurse.
