Mission Statement

Health Office Mission Statement

 

 

"You cannot educate a child who is not healthy, and you cannot keep a child healthy who is not educated."

 

 

     This statement by the former US Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders, MD, clearly illustrates the very essence of the school nurse's mission. Wellness does not just matter - it is critical. It is critical not just for the student, but for teachers and staff as well. The school health program emphasizes the interaction of health and wellness with education and learning. Our goal is to enable academic, social, physical, and emotional success by stressing prevention of disease and promotion of health and safety through individual counseling, education, and service.
