Emergency Contact Information in Aspen

It is essential that Parents/Guardians complete the emergency information for each child electronically via the ASPEN system upon enrollment, annually and throughout the year if contact/medical information changes. Parents/guardians must complete the ASPEN medical emergency card in its entirety to provide:

  • emergency contact information 
  • medical consent
  • consent to release a child to another identified adult in event of illness or emergency in parent/guardian’s absence.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Health Services Department is to keep Darien students physically, mentally, and socially able to attend school in order to be educated, participate in athletics, extra-curricular programs, and student activities.
The Health Services Department staff is comprised of school nurses, a nursing director, a physician consultant and health services department secretary.
The nurses provide direct care as well as services that promote wellness, promote independence and self-care, encourage healthy choices, as well as prevent, identify, manage, and minimize health related barriers to each child’s education.
The Director of Nursing Services is responsible for the planning, coordination, implementation and evaluation of the total school health program.
The school nurse monitors that students have the necessary physical assessments and immunizations in order to attend school.
The school nurse ensures that each student receives the necessary interventions ordered by practitioners that may be needed during school hours as well as performing state mandated health screenings such as vision, hearing and postural screenings.
In addition school nurses manage matters pertaining to public health concerns that may arise in school such as contagious diseases.
