Welcome to the St. Ann School Nurse’s Page.
My name is Diane Kerr, RN and I am very excited to have the opportunity to work as the St. Ann School Nurse. The Nurse’s Office is located in the Franciscan Wing, across from the Kindergarten classroom. The healthcare and well-being of every child directly affects their ability to grow and concentrate on learning.
I am available during the school year five days a week from 7:30 AM - 3:15 PM and I will be assisting your child and you with their health care needs.

Diocesan policy regarding school immunizations
Required school immunizations are not in conflict with the teachings of the Catholic Church. Therefore, Catholic schools will accept only medical exemptions from immunizations. There are no religious or parental-preference exemptions granted in Catholic schools.
To request a medical exemption, parents or guardians must obtain and complete the appropriate documentation provided by the school nurse.
All new students entering school must document
the required immunizations on the specified timeline.
Documentation of a health examination must be on file. The examination must be current (completed within two years of entry) and conducted by a currently licensed physician, advanced practice nurse, nurse practitioner, or physician's assistant.
Links for the physical examinations can be found at the bottom of this page for:
Student Health Form for PreK to Grade 6

Lead and Tuberculosis Screenings:
The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Act requires that all students entering kindergarten or prior must provide documentation of a blood test within sixty days of school entry.
Results of the Mantoux screening or an assessment as recommended by the Delaware Division of Public Health must have been completed within the past 12 months
