Medical Support Team
It is important to remember that good physical and mental health are essential for every child’s educational development and achievement. In addition to serious health conditions there are many other health reasons for a student’s lack of success in the classroom including lack of sleep, poor nutrition (skipping meals or not eating healthy foods), not enough exercise or activity and even stress or worry about personal problems.
Our school nurses can explore ways to assist you and your child. Our school nurse will work with teachers to help your child be successful during his or her educational career.
The goal of the School Nurses is to promote a safe and healthy community in which the students will be encouraged to become life-long learners, self-managers and self-advocates for health, education and other issues.
