Health Services

The Health Services department consists of 10 part-time Nurses and a Health Services Coordinator who oversee the health and wellness of students and staff during school hours, including hands-on nursing care for acute and chronic student illnesses. They develop plans of care for students with chronic health care needs, provide health care education and implement student health screenings such as vision/hearing and scoliosis. In addition, the health services staff trains school system employees in CPR, AED/Code Valentine, and First Aid.
