• The JCSS Student Health Services Program believes that students are able to thrive and perform at their potential when they are healthy and present.

  • Our Student Health Services Program is staffed by Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, and unlicensed clinic assistants. Licensed nurses are responsible for the development of school-based individual healthcare plans for students with chronic health conditions and school clinic staff are available for daily health needs.

    School-based nursing services provide health-related support for students with documented health conditions, including:

    • Coordinate vision, hearing, dental, scoliosis, and other required screenings for students, including referrals as needed
    • Ensure immunizations for students are current as required by federal, state, and local regulations
    • Provide first-aid, emergency care, and medical support as needed while a student is on premise at school
    • Assist parents with the administration of prescribed medical treatment based on a medical need per written physician order.
    • Provide information for preventing common illnesses through health education, guidance to parents, and community resources.
    • Promote awareness activities through education and health initiatives
