Health Services Provided

Our school health room staff are trained in basic first aid and medication administration.

If an incident or injury is severe, a medical emergency response team (consisting of staff trained in CPR, first aid and administration of emergency medication such as inhalers or Epipens) will respond and 911 will be called if needed. There are bleeding control stations and an AED in each school.

Certain health problems can be a barrier to optimal learning. In order to identify some of the more frequently occurring problems, our school district conducts the following screenings:
