Good health enables all students to benefit from the education experience leading to productive living
and a successful future. School nurses actively promote healthy life style choices, strengthen and
facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting children's health status, and are advocates
for school age children.
The objectives of the school health program are to promote good health habits, stimulate a sanitary, safe and healthful environment in school and to assist in the identification and referral to appropriate health care providers for medical, psychological and physical needs. Any health concerns should be brought to the attention of the school nurse. Students may request to see the school nurse by requesting a pass from teachers or school staff. Policy JLC
