District nursing staff work to assure that all students have full participation in educational programs. Our school nurses monitor the district's health care practices and serve as a resource to building staff. Our goal is that all children are successful in school.
School nurses are responsible for implementing students’ physician-directed health care plans and care for ill, medically fragile, and injured students. They also facilitate vision and dental screenings at all schools and assist students in getting dental and vision services as needed. The district nurses visit schools regularly to provide training and to support staff with student health issues.
