Health and Wellness

Note from OLA Nurses

The OLA nurses are a group of volunteer registered nurses who are school parents. We offer our clinical knowledge and background, nursing perspective, and advice as it pertains to school events, policy, and maintaining the health and wellness of our children here at OLA.

Our goal is to support parents, students, teachers, and school and parish administrators by offering assistance with various health-related matters.

Our primary focus has been:

  • Food policies on campus
  • Faculty first aid, Epi-pen/Auvi-Q training, and anaphylaxis training and education
  • Contagious disease prevention and enforcement of hand hygiene
  • Diocesan health policies,
  • Support for students and families with special health needs

The role of the volunteer OLA nurses is evolving. As members of the OLA community, we are honored to collaborate with our wonderful parents, students, teachers and administrators to ensure a happy healthy school environment.

If you have any questions or suggestions pertaining to the above-mentioned issues or any other health related issues, please feel free to contact us via email- olanurses@gmail.com or via the front office phone line.

If you are a parent at OLA who would like to join our team, please contact us!

School Garden

The purpose of the school garden is to beautify the campus and create an additional educational opportunity for the students and teachers. The school garden is a nurturing and fruitful addition to our school and parish community, while also promoting academics, community, environmental stewardship, social awareness and healthy life choices. All students have access to the garden and help complete the seeding and harvesting cycle with the produce being donated to the OLA Saint Vincent de Paul food locker on campus.

For example, students released ladybugs and worms and they also planted radishes, carrots, lettuce. To complete the cycle, the students harvested the many fruits of their labor and delivered the items to the OLA Saint Vincent de Paul food locker. Our Science teacher, Mrs. Antonio has the 5th grade science students plant their bean seeds in the garden once they have finished their in class experiment.

           

Safety

Our Lady of the Assumption School's outdoor play area has undergone significant improvement over the past two years. Because we believe that "playtime" plays a critical role in the development of a child, we have designed a play area where children can run, climb, play, create, dream and imagine. These enhancements include: a renovated track and field, new basketball hoops, and lastly, the crown jewel of our play area, a new playground. This playground features the latest in playground innovation and safety, and has been created to help children develop balance, coordination, muscle endurance and problem solving skills. Best of all, it is fun - and safe!
