We are asking parents and guardians to take a moment to please contact your PA senator to cosponsor Andy Dinniman’s proposed bill to ensure there is a nurse in every non-public school.
It is important to note that this would not bring any additional financial burdens on the school as the CARES Act calls for funding for nursing within schools. The CARES Act provides funding for nursing services to schools with more than 100 students, private or public.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring each school has a nurse is more important than ever. In order to keep everyone healthy and safe, please take a few moments to contact your senator to make sure each school has the help of a nurse. And remember, to thank a nurse and any other medical professional in your life today and everyday!
