Wellness

St. James has a number of supports in place to attend to each student’s health and well-being during their time here.  

Our School Nurse manages health records, responds to and treats student illnesses and minor injuries on campus, dispenses medication according to State of Louisiana Medical regulations, and supports students with chronic conditions.   

Student health is also supported through our Nutrition Program.  Meals and snacks provided by Chef Advantage provide ample portions of healthy and delicious food with daily choices and a salad bar.  Our school nurse, the cafeteria manager, and each child’s teacher will work together to handle any food allergies or other dietary needs. St. James strives for a minimized allergen environment for the sake of wellness for all in our community. 

Our certified School Counselor visits Early Learning and Lower Elementary classrooms weekly.  The counselor also provides individual and small group counseling as well as whole class lessons for Upper Elementary students. Serving as a liaison between the school and outside counselors and therapists, the counselor works directly with families whose children receive additional support services.
