DS Health Services

School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success, and lifelong achievement of students. To that end, School Nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning.

- National Association of School Nurses

The school nurse is available in each school to assist in promoting good health and in maintaining a healthy and safe environment for staff and students. Please feel free to contact your child’s school nurse with any health concerns or questions you may have.
