The mission of our comprehensive school health services is to maintain school health for all aspects of development so every student will succeed in school; physically, emotionally, intellectually & socially. In order to accomplish such optimal wellness, we must develop a strong link between parents, school, community resources and the school health office. The role of the school nurse has been expanded to include the following:

  • Illness assessment, referral & followup
  • Routine & emergency first aid treatment
  • Infection control
  • Environmental health & safety
  • Health education & consultation to students, staff & parents
  • Health counseling
  • Mandated screenings
  • Medication administration
  • Case management of children with special needs
  • Mental health screening & referral
  • Emergency care planning

You are strongly encouraged to communicate any health concerns/developments to your child's school nurse. Together we can help your child succeed.
