In line with emerging international school best practice, ASM maintains strong child protection policies and procedures and our school strives to maintain a safe and secure environment for all students.
Consistent with the ASM’s mission to attend to the emotional, moral, physical, and social needs of its students, ASM health services are open during the entire school day for ASM students and staff from all divisions.
Two registered nurses provide first aid, care for minor illnesses, and assistance for students with chronic health problems requiring medication during the school day.
The nurses perform vision and hearing testing for Lower School children, scoliosis screening for 6th and 8th grade students, information about medical services in Madrid, and teaches or supports certain parts of the health curriculum in all three divisions of the school.
COVID Our Joint Responsibility
Communication is Key
It is critical that all medical conditions (symptoms, illnesses, conditions) be reported directly to the School Nurse or that she be included in any communication with the teachers/offices regarding medical matters. Staff and students who have experienced symptoms or had a positive COVID test cannot return to ASM without medical clearance from the School Nurse. This is her legal responsibility as the Designated COVID Tracker at school.
