Health Services

Welcome to the School Health Services Office. We are at your service! Our two certified school nurses and four full-time nurse technicians provide direct health care to the students and staff in our district and schools. We also serve in a leadership capacity for the provision of health services, policies, and programs.

We provide screenings and referrals for health concerns and serve as a liaison between school personnel, family, community, and health care providers.

When to Keep a Sick Child Home from School

Please keep your child home if they present any one of the following symptoms during the night or in the morning:

  • Rash or skin eruptions anywhere on the body
  • Fever (anything over 100.0 degrees)
    Please do not give your child Tylenol and send them to school. Keep them home.
  • If your child has vomited or had diarrhea in the last 24 hours
  • Untreated pink eye

If we have learned anything in the past couple of years, it is to keep sick children home and not send them to school. Sending a sick child to school puts your child and other students at risk. 

Please write a note of explanation to the teacher when the student returns.

Thank you for understanding and supporting our TASD community.
