What Do We Do?
At our school health office we want to ensure that all students are healthy and ready to learn.
Our services contribute to the goals of student education. We provide health care for acute, chronic, episodic and emergency health situations.
Services range from providing vision and hearing screenings and referrals for medical conditions, administering prescribed medications, emergency medications, specialized procedure treatments and first aid.
The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person.
