The goal of the School Health Services program is to provide a safe, healthy, and positive learning environment that fosters student achievement. We have a school nurse assigned to every schools in our district and a designated health room attendant in all of our schools. Please see your school nurse for any health concerns you have about your child and we will do everything in our power to assist.
