School Health Services

School health service professionals play a critical role in providing everyday care for our students. The school health team typically consists of the school physician, school nurse(s), and health assistants working in partnership with the student, their parents and caregivers, and the student’s primary healthcare provider(s). Whether conducting routine screenings; responding to injuries, illnesses, or emergencies; providing referrals or care coordination; or assisting with family outreach and health counseling and education, school health services staff work together to ensure that all students are healthy and ready to learn.
