Whether a child feels healthy, safe and supported can have a significant impact on student performance.
In order to create a positive learning environment, the district supports health and safety policies and practices that address the physical, social and emotional needs of all students.
This section of the district website covers a wide variety of topics that relate to students' well-being.
Parents: Please see below and use the Health & Safety "more information" links on the right to review practical information regarding your child's well-being.
If you suspect your child may be ill, please do NOT send him or her to school. We are committed to reducing the spread of infectious conditions and are not equipped to manage a sick child at school for any extended period of time.

Some other considerations:
Your child’s physician is the best source of information and advice in regard to your child’s health or illness. You are also welcome to contact your school nurse.
Parents of children with severe allergies who wish to work with the district on developing a care plan for their child should so inform their school principal and/or school nurse by August 1 of each year.
Special tutoring or transportation may be arranged for a student with an extended illness or an injury that prevents attendance at regular school or use of regular bus transportation. Special tutoring must be requested by the parent and recommended by a physician. Special transportation must be recommended by the attending physician and should be requested from the Superintendent.
The district’s pupil accident insurance policy contains the
provision that the family’s insurance will be used first in the
event of an injury to a student in school. The amount that is
not covered under the family policy may, in certain
circumstances, be submitted to the school district’s insurer.
