Health is essential to optimal learning.

Our Health Services team is available to all students within our district. Registered Nurses and Health Aides strive to maximize each student's potential by removing health-related barriers to learning. When meeting the student's health needs during the school day, Health Services staff also use the opportunity to teach students to make wise choices that will be beneficial to their future health.

Our team:

  • Provides acute and emergency health care

  • Assesses students' health to identify and address health-related obstacles to learning

  • Maintains clinic preparedness for potential crises

  • Develops and implements Individualized Health Plans and 504 Plans to reduce impact of chronic and episodic health conditions upon academic achievement

  • Trains additional personnel to administer medications safely so that students with medical needs can participate in extracurricular school activities

  • Screens students’ vision and hearing

  • Provides medical care that allows medically-challenged students to attend school (i.e., trachea care, catheterization, G-tube feedings, and wound care)

  • Prevents contagious illness and injuries through surveillance and implementation of appropriate precautionary measures

  • Maintains state mandated immunization records and other health assessment data

  • Assists families to locate health resources in their community

  • Educates individuals and groups about health issues in order to increase their health literacy
