Promoting Student Health

School health services staff can help all students with preventive care such as vision screening, case management planning for health concerns, as well as acute and emergency care. At Edmonds School District qualified professional school nurses provide this care.  For students with chronic health conditions, school nurses and other health care providers play a large role in the daily management of their conditions. School health services staff are responsible for coordinating care by communicating with the student’s family, school staff and health care providers so that they can stay healthy and ready to learn.

School health services is part of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model, which promotes a collaborative approach designed to improve learning and health in our state schools. 

A medical home is key to wellness.  Wellness care with a consistent health care provider gives students a better chance of staying healthy.  A medical home provides:

  • Regular screening exams
  • Information of developmental milestones - movement, speech / language, social, emotional and self-care skills.
  • Immunizations
  • Health and safety tips
