Student Health Services

                    FREE  YOUR KIDS FROM THE TV!
Use these basic tips to limit your child's screen time:

1.  Keep TV's out of your child's bedroom.
2.  Don't put  a TV in eating areas, such as the kitchen or dining room.
3.  Don't allow your child to watch TV while doing homework.
4.  Treat TV as a privilege that your child needs to earn and not a right to which he or she is entitled.
5.  Limit TV on school days.
6.  Offer fun alternatives to television, such as playing a board game, crafts, hobbies, etc.

  • Provide care to students with chronic medical conditions as delegated by the LSN.
  • Maintain documentation of immunizations and other health issues as part of the student health record.
  • Administer medications as delegated by the LSN.
  • Assist with monitoring and providing information regarding communicable concerns.
  • Are certified in CPR and First-Aid, may also be licensed as an LPN.

Nurturing Healthy Learners


  • Students need 8-10 hours of sleep. Set appropriate bedtimes and help your child get in the habit of going to bed on time.

  • Good nutrition is also directly related to the ability to learn. A good breakfast fuels the brain for the morning. Top foods for brains: whole grains, eggs, fish, all berries, broccoli, nuts, tomatoes.

  • Good attendance is critical for learning. All students should strive for a 95% or better attendance record (one day absence per month average.)

  • Hand washing remains the single most effective way of reducing illness: colds, flu and communicable diseases.

  • Regular exams with medical and dental providers help to prevent health problems. See your school nurse for available resources.

  • Daily physical exercise is important. Limit your child’s time viewing television, playing video games and cell phone use.

  • Water, water, water! Oxygen is the #1 super fuel of the brain, water is #2. Encourage your child to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
