Welcome to Health Services

 

Optimal learning requires good physical, oral and mental health. The school nurse is the best person to provide information to students and families in these areas. Please contact the school nurse whenever you have questions or concerns about your child’s health or safety. We’re here for you. The goal of Health Services is to promote the health of students through:

  • Disease Prevention
  • Early case finding
  • Referral for intervention
  • Remediation of specific health problems
 
Health services are vitally necessary in order to provide:  first aid and triage for illness and injuries; direct services for students with special needs; and promotion of health counseling and education for students, parents and staff. School health services are a significant component in a continuum of care from the family to the community care system. This continuum is necessary to maintain students’ health thereby promoting optimal participation in their educational process.
