A Note from the Nurse
Hello, Eagle Families!
We could not be more excited to welcome you and your student to OMS for another successful year as an Oakbrook Eagle! Our main priority in the OMS Health Clinic is ensuring that your student is able to get the most out of their educational experience by keeping them safe and healthy while at school. We aim to provide a safe and welcoming space for your student. If there is a medication that your student needs daily or on an as-needed basis at school, please see the below documents in order to start that process. Please contact us if you have any questions throughout the school year, and we will respond as soon as possible. Our goal this year is to give all of our Eagles the tools and skills they need to navigate today's healthcare environment with confidence and self-advocacy.
Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you or your student along the way.
