About Health Services

  • Student health services provided within the district schools is directed toward a goal of good health and based on the belief that learning and health are connected. The Health Services staff includes a health services coordinator, an assistant health services coordinator, and registered nurses in every school.

    Nurses positively affect student attendance. A registered nurse at school every day allows for prompt and professional responses to health concerns and medical issues. In the event of illness or accidents, the nurse provides emergency care.

    Responsibilities of the nurse include first aid and illness care, the maintenance of student health records, the development of healthcare plans, and screenings for student vision and hearing needs. Parents/guardians are encouraged to bring questions about immunizations, health exams, medication, or student health needs to the nurse.

    • Allergy & Asthma Awareness
    • Care of Illness & Injury
    • Communicable Disease Management
    • Health & Wellness
      • Wellness Policy
