HEALTHY KIDS LEARN BETTER!
School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.

Health offices are closed during the summer. Please keep this in mind when sending documents to your school nurse. If these documents are required for fall sports participation, do not mail or fax them to the school. Submit them when registering for the sport or during the Nurse-On- Duty hours. Check the school's health office website for these dates.
Have a safe and healthy summer!
