The school nurse strengthens and facilitates the educational process by identifying, modifying or re-mediating health-related barriers to learning. This includes appropriate assessment, planning, intervention, evaluation management and/or referral activities; serves as direct link between physicians, families and community agencies to assure access and continuity of health care of students; and provides relevant instruction, counseling, and guidance to students, parents, staff and others concerning health related issues.
The mission of Health Services is to assist students to achieve academically and socially in the school environment by promoting health and wellness for all students. We will work, collaboratively with students, colleagues, parents and community to ensure a safe, healthy environment where continuous learning can occur.
