Drop and Go Medical Donations - Starting Saturday March 28th!
The Health Services Department of the Byram Hills Central School District supports the belief that children who feel healthy and safe are better prepared to engage in their educational program and to be successful students. The Health Services Department operates under the direction of Jill Boynton, the Director of Special Services and Health Services. Each school has a Health Office staffed by a highly trained Registered Nurse. The elementary schools each have a full-time Health Aide who assists the nurse with student care and clerical responsibilities. In addition, the School Physician, Louis A. Corsaro MD, is available for consultation when necessary.
The School Nurses have many important responsibilities which include: responding to staff and student emergencies, delivering first aid, assuring that students with acute and chronic illnesses are able to participate in their school program safely, completing mandated New York State Health Screenings, serving as members of the Committee on Special Education when appropriate, education and training of the school community on health-related topics, and promotion of a culture of health and wellness in their schools.
The Byram Hills Schools are closed until April 13th and utilizing e-learning opportunities. Please see all archived communications from Dr. Jen Lamia to the community via this LINK.
The Byram Hills School District and all other school districts in Westchester have been directed by Westchester County and New York State to provide childcare for children for healthcare workers and first responders (police, fire, EMS, and all public health workers) with no other childcare options. During this time of great need in Westchester County, the Armonk Children’s Corner will provide child care at our Coman Hill School utilizing up to three classrooms and the cafeteria with the number of students per room restricted by the Executive Order. There will be a nurse on staff.
Pending the availability of resources and the number of requests received, this childcare will be available for children ages 5 through 12, each weekday from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
Those who would like to participate must provide proof of employment (such as work ID) and fill out necessary medical and emergency information.
