Welcome to Student Health Services

Our goal is to help children maintain optimal health so they can take advantage of all of the educational opportunities offered to them. Healthy children learn better

Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s school nurse with any health concerns that may affect your child during the school day. We appreciate the opportunity to work with students and parents to provide a safe and healthy environment for learning.

  • Maintain individual health records for each student, including immunization records
  • Injury and illness assessment
  • Health promotion activities
  • Chronic disease monitoring
  • Identification of health concerns
  • Medication management
