Peabody school nurses work under the direction of the Peabody Department of Health and Human Services, the Peabody Board of Health, and the city physician, Dr. Nicholas Avgerinos, M.D.
School health services are available in all of our schools. In the event of a serious illness or injury, a parent or guardian will be notified immediately. In the absence of a school nurse, every effort is made to obtain a substitute nurse. On a rare occasion one is not available, the nursing staff will share the responsibility for meeting the medical needs of all students.
