Our school nurse provides health services that increase school attendance and prevent and control the spread of communicable diseases. She is responsible for verification of immunizations and providing hearing/vision screenings. She also manages students with chronic health conditions and administers specialized services to students. In partnership with our school, parents and district, our nurse strives to increase student achievement by promoting and advocating for the health, wellness and safety of all students.
