District Health Services

The Nurse’s Office is concerned with the overall health and well-being of the student and how his/her health impacts the educational process. It is important for the parent or guardian to keep the nurse informed of any health concerns. All information will be treated with sensitivity and confidentiality. For matters of an urgent nature that need immediate nursing attention please contact the nurse via telephone rather than by email.

Absences are to be reported to the main office of your child’s school. Please state the child's name, grade, teacher, and reason for absence. All other school related health concerns can be answered by the nurse's office.
