District Health Services

The purpose of the school health program in North East is to provide the means for our children to be in a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being. Parents have the basic responsibility for the health of their children, but the school’s concomitant role is to help parents recognize and carry out their responsibility.

The health needs of school children have dramatically changed in recent years. Many challenges are faced daily in today’s health setting. More and more students now come to school acutely and chronically ill, with serious emotional troubles, and with special healthcare needs.

  2. Assisting in the identification, education and healthcare of special needs students
  3. Counseling students, parents and staff concerning any health problem
  4.  Preventing and controlling communicable diseases
  5. Encouraging the correction of remedial defects
  6. Providing emergency care for Sudden illness and injury that occur while under the school’s jurisdiction
  7. Administering medications according to district policy

Medication Procedures

Students requiring medication during the school day should immediately secure proper forms from the school office, which will authorize the school nurse, building principal, and/or his/her designee to give the medication. This is the only way in which the school nurse or building principal can legally give medicine to students. The forms (Form I and Form II) are completed by the family physician and the parent/guardian. A Notary Public's seal is required. This service is available in the School Administration Office and provided free of charge to families of school age children.
