School Health Services

The mission of School Health Services is to enhance the education of our students by removing health related barriers to learning and promoting an optimal level of wellness.

We abide by our motto:

Health & Learning: the Critical Link to Student Success

We staff each of our 18 health offices with a health assistant. Our health aides work under the direct supervision of a district registered nurse to ensure the medical needs of your child are being met. District registered nurses are assigned to a cluster of schools and travel among these schools on a weekly basis. They answer medical questions, train and delegate tasks to the school health aide, approve prescribed orders, implement healthcare plans, attend 504 meetings, and ensure all state mandated guidelines are met. Together, our health services team provides essential services to all District One students, including:

  • All Health Forms, Medication Orders, and Emergency Care Plans are received
  • Each year the Health Office Permission/Information Form must be filled out and, if applicable, an Emergency Care Plan (see Forms & Documents link)
  • Immunization Review & Notification
  • Health Screenings (weight, height, vision, hearing, blood pressure)
  • Collaboration with Dental Clinics and the United Way
  • Communicable Disease Reporting
  • Health Teaching
  • Case Management for Medically Fragile Students (RN only)

While our registered nurses travel to different locations, it is imperative for parents/guardians to reach out if there is a medical concern or if you have a medically fragile child. The email links to each registered nurse are listed below, along with their cluster school sites.

Concerns over COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Should the status of COVID-19 in Yuma County change, District One will communicate with parents/guardians in multiple ways to ensure you receive our messages. As a reminder, please ensure your child(ren)’s school has updated contact information to include: email address, home or cell phone number, and mailing address. Since the use of Blackboard Messaging is a useful tool, we encourage you to ensure you are enrolled to receive these messages.

Where can parents/guardians find updated information?
