Health and Wellness
Doane Academy continues to closely monitor the developments of the COVID-19 outbreak. Please continue to check your email regularly for updates regarding the school's response. The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and the broader community are our highest priority. We continue to rely on the advice of the CDC, NAIS, and our local public health officials.
The uncertainty and continually evolving nature of this situation can be stressful. We want to provide you with resources to help you and your family stay up-to-date with the latest developments, guidance on how to talk with your children about COVID-19, and steps you can take to help mitigate the spread:
- Visit CDC.gov for up-to-date information regarding the US response to the virus.
- Stop the Spread of Germs
- The New York Times: Talking to Tweens and Teens About Coronavirus
- PBS for Parents: How to Talk to Your Kids About Coronavirus
- NPR: Just for Kids: A Comic Exploring the New Coronavirus
At Doane Academy, we know that achievement and fulfillment are inextricably tied to issues of health and wellness. Students can only reach their unique potential if they are surrounded with the kind of love and support that allow them to feel valued, safe, and resilient.
Through the advisor program, curriculum, and learning services, Doane guides students from the Primary program to the senior class to make wise choices regarding issues of mental health, conflict management, peer pressure, social media use and digital citizenship, stress, sleep, nutrition, exercise, substance use and abuse, bullying, and sexuality. Seniors graduate prepared not only for the academic rigor of college but also for living a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Doane provides students who may need additional academic assistance with several important resources. We have on-campus access to both a reading specialist and a speech therapist who consult with faculty members and division heads to recognize students in need of support in these areas. In addition, a tutor works one-on-one with students having specific challenges in a given subject or set of subjects. These specialists, along with of Doane’s faculty and staff, work together to craft Individualized Education Programs for students who learn differently from their peers, and the school updates these plans with student specific goals yearly so that each applicable student develops an increasingly positive sense of ownership over their learning process.
Game Day Athletic Nurse
Doane Academy’s student-athletes receive immediate attention from our Game Day Athletic Nurse. Injuries are inevitable in athletics. From concussions to a sprained ankle, the ultimate well-being of each individual is the top priority. Our Game Day Athletic Nurse will be on campus for all Doane Academy home games attending to the medical needs of our student-athletes that arise before and during games.
