Our Nurses

In the ConVal School District, all school health services are delivered in the overall context of the child, the family, and the child’s overall health plan. School nurses play a crucial role in the provision of school health services and fulfill a central management role in the implementation of the school health services program for all children and youths in the school system.

School nurses provide acute, chronic, episodic, and emergency health care. In addition, they may provide health education and health counseling and advocates for students with disabilities. School nurses routinely collaborate with primary care physicians, specialists, and local public health and social service agencies to ensure a full spectrum of effective and quality services that sustain children, youth, and their families.

The Health Office also assists students in achieving optimum levels of wellness by providing resources for health education, teaching basic principles of health formally and informally with individual students, in small groups, or in classroom presentations.
