The health program is designed primarily to maintain health and prevent serious disability or illness. Each school has a qualified nurse on duty each school day in which children are in attendance.
Our overall goal is to ensure the health and well-being of all of our students.
We strive to achieve this goal by:
- Providing basic first aid and emergency care to students and staff during school hours
- Assisting parents and students in monitoring and managing chronic illnesses such as diabetes, seizures, severe allergies, and asthma
- Managing and maintaining state mandated health records to ensure compliance with Illinois School Health Code
- Working collaboratively with the Health Department on monitoring and reporting concerns about, or symptoms of communicable diseases.
