The Health Center at ACS Athens consists of a Registered Nurse (Ms. Corinne Baty) and an Administrative Assistant (Ms. Katerina Peristerakis). These two health care providers are dedicated to the well being of our students.
Having a School Health Office gives the parents peace of mind knowing that if a medical situation should arise, the students will be seen promptly and the appropriate action taken. The knowledge that caring health providers are available at ACS Athens is also a comfort to the students.
We, at ACS Athens, are committed to providing optimal care.
Wishing everyone a safe and healthy year.

ACS Athens Health Office Requirements
During enrollment, parents must register their children with the school nurse. Certain forms need to be filled out concerning the health of each child. Additionally, parents are urged to update these forms whenever changes occur during the school year. The Health Office forms are:
School Health Record Card
This card consists of general information on the child, and also a section for names and telephone numbers of persons to reach in case of emergency. This form also has a section for reporting any special health problems (allergies, medication requirements, etc.) that a child may have. It is important that the Nurse has this information for the safety of each child.
Parents are required to give authorization to allow the Nurse to administer non-prescription medication (aspirin or non-aspirin pain reliever, for example). After completing the card, parents must sign on the space provided at the bottom.
Emergency Form ( Yellow )
It is necessary that parents complete this form. In the event of an emergency the child may need to be transported to a hospital. This form is divided into two sections; parents need only complete one or the other.
Section 1 gives permission for a child to be transferred to one of the listed hospitals, all of which are near the school. Section 2 should be completed if parents wish to choose a different hospital or clinic not listed in Section 1.
School Health Examination
The ACS Athens Health Office requires that EVERY new and returning student has a physical examination carried out and signed by a QUALIFIED PHYSICIAN (updates every year). If a child has had a check-up within a year prior to registration, then a photocopy of the record of this examination will suffice. The physical examination form must be submitted to the Health Office within 30 days from the date of registration.
