Health Services serves the health needs for all students in Adams 12 Five Star Schools. District Registered Nurses have assigned schools and work with school Health Aides. Health related tasks commonly performed by a parent/guardian at home take on a complex dimension in the school setting. Therefore, any health-related procedures in schools require medical orders.
The district Registered Nurses train and/or delegate school personnel in each building to implement a plan of action to ensure safety for all students. School Health Aides are trained in CPR and First Aid and carry a current certificate.
Please contact your district Registered Nurse for questions about a specific health condition or health need.
Students with chronic or acute health conditions who may need additional support related to attendance and access to education may be eligible for protection under Section 504 and/or Homebound Services.
