Nurses are an essential part of the safety and well-being of students on campus. Every school in the district has an on-site nurse to provide first aid, maintain records, assist in special education programs and screen for diseases of the eyes, ears and teeth. The role of the school nurse is to collaborate with the educators to:
- Assess and evaluate the health and development of students.
- Be the health care liaison to the student.
- Counsel and educate.
- Find resources to assist in students' health care.
