Health & Wellness
Perkiomen School has developed a Health & Safety Plan for 2020-2021 that has been developed, reviewed, and approved by the Infection Control Specialist at St. Luke’s Quakertown | Upper Bucks campus.
Decisions are made with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the Montgomery County Department of Health.
Perkiomen School is committed to every student’s health and well-being. The Cleaver Kistler Health Center on campus has professional nurses on duty 24 hours a day when school is in session. Regular clinic hours are held each day for students needing routine medical attention:
Monday-Friday: 7 a.m. - 10 p.m.
Saturday-Sunday: staff are on call for injuries and illness
Tri-Valley Primary Care serves as the school’s doctors. Our nursing staff makes appointments for students who are ill.
All prescription or non-prescription medications are stored in the Health Center in the name of the student, and dispensed by the nurses.
All students must complete medical forms before arriving on campus and have a physical each year.
