Linden Hall values the overall health and wellness of our students. The faculty and staff at Linden Hall know that meeting students' physical and emotional health needs allows students to thrive both academically and socially. The Health and Wellness staff at Linden Hall is a dedicated team of health care professionals. The Health and Wellness Center is located adjacent to the Annex Lounge. A Licensed Practical Nurse and Licensed Social Worker are available to students during the school day, and health care is available on an emergency basis 24 hours a day.
In addition, Health and Wellness courses focuses on the "whole student" and gives her the tools she needs to succeed. Topics covered in Health and Wellness include Internet safety, self defense, depression prevention, bullying, empathy, nutrition, financial literacy, and leadership.
At Linden Hall, our students' health and well-being is our number one priority. Communication between parents and the school nurse is very important. The school physician provides direct medical care by appointment and is available by consultation as needed.
The Health and Wellness Center is staffed by a Licensed Practical Nurse to serve the needs of both day and boarding students when school is in session. The school nurse is on duty Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The school nurse is also available to dorm staff for questions or emergencies during off-duty hours.
