    Department Overview

    The health services staff is here to partner with you and the school faculty/staff to ensure a healthy and safe environment for your child to learn and grow.   Each school building has a health office that is staffed by a nurse and is accessible to your child during school hours.  Our goal is to help keep your child healthy and in school learning.  If your child has a chronic health issue, concern or special needs, we will work with you and your doctor to ensure your child has his/her needs met.  Please contact your child's nurse for any concerns at any time during the school year.
