District nurses work to assure that all students have full participation in educational programs. Our 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.
District 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.
Health Guidelines and Policies
We follow a number of health related laws and policies to ensure that students attend school regularly, are well fed, and ready to learn.
Keeping Your Child Healthy
Our goal is that all students come to school ready to learn. Ask your school office if you need assistance with health and wellness resources for your child.
It is important to be aware of warning signs that your child may be struggling. Parents can play a critical role in making sure students get the support needed. If you have concerns about your student, please talk with the school principal, school counselor, district nurse, mental health provider, or another health care professional.
