Welcome to Gateway School District's Health Services Department...
School health services are designed to help students attain optimum health status so that they may receive maximum benefits from their educational experience. These services deal with the physical, mental, emotional, and social development of each student.
School health services include procedures established to assess the health status of students; to counsel students, parents and others concerning the findings; to encourage and plan for the correction of identified problems; to assist in the identification and education of special needs students; to prevent and control disease; and to provide emergency care following injury or illness which occurs in school.
School health services supplement the health care parents should provide for their children. These services are not a substitute for family responsibilities but rather are designed to assist parents in devoting attention to child health, to call attention to health problems which are identified, and to encourage them to access community health agencies and health providers.
The Health Services staff is responsible for the implementation of the programs and procedures required by state and local laws, and for educational efforts that support the Gateway School District’s goals related to a safe and healthy school environment.
Services are provided to district employees for health counseling, emergency care and health programs as needed.
