Comprehensive Health Services
Our mission for Comprehensive Health is to provide confidential accessible and age-appropriate comprehensive health services designed to keep students healthy and ready to learn. Staff members provide ongoing assessments, interventions, education, and referrals for children and their families. In addition, a health maintenance, prevention and intervention model is promoted. In order for children to be ready to learn and to move toward their optimum development educationally and socially, we concern ourselves with the present health conditions of our students here in FUSD. The students can do their best work only if their health permits them to participate to the extent that the school program requires.
“You can’t educate a child who isn’t healthy, and you can’t keep a child healthy who isn’t educated.”
The Credentialed School Nurse (RN) as a pivotal member of the school and district coordinated school health and safety program, addressing the health care needs of school children as they relate to education. The scope of practice of the credentialed school nurse is dynamic.

Health offices are also staffed by the Health Assistant who maintains the school site Health Office performing first aid, attends ill children, maintaining records and administering medication. Each health assistant maintains current CPR and First Aid certification and is trained by the district nurses.
