Student Health Information

"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success and life-long achievement of students.  To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning." (National Association of School Nurses)

School nurses are valuable support to students and staff in each school.  They are committed to providing a continuum of services for all students, including those with special needs.  Their goal is to ensure a safe, positive, appropriate learning environment for all students.  All students enrolled in UCSD #1 must comply with Wyoming State immunization requirements.  Students may receive medication at school following the school district policy (see "Administering Medicines to Students")
