    About Health Services

    The mission of the Health Services Department is to establish and maintain a comprehensive school health program, which provides positive contributions to a student's readiness and ability to learn.  In this regard, Student Health Services identifies physical limitations or medical problems that impede a student's learning and addresses them through direct services or referrals to medical and other community resources.

    This program provides students with school immunizations, wellness screenings for all students, and referral resources for students identified with potential or existing health issues. The district currently has a nursing staff of 32 registered nurses, 6 licensed practical nurses, and one administrator.

    We also provide the following services through our school-based clinics:

    • Screening: We provide comprehensive health screening in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th grade for students. These screenings examine various student health variables, including their weight, height, and blood pressure, vision, hearing, and dental health to determine if any problems are present.

    • Immunizations: We provide routine childhood immunizations during the school year for children ages 3 to 18 years.

    • Diseases: We report and monitor the spread of communicable diseases within our school community.

    • Health Education: Health, nutrition, and development education to students.

    • First Aid: First aid and emergency care for students and faculty.
