•  SVSD Health Services Department

     
    As a department, our focus is supporting student health and academic success.  We are committed to contributing to a healthy and safe environment in which all students can learn. Our staff is comprised of a supervising school nurse, an elementary lead school nurse, several school nurses and health room assistants. We work closely with students, their families and school staff to promote better health and greater learning. Our team is responsible for mandated health screenings, immunization compliance, assessment of student health needs, development and implementation of required individual health/emergency plans, in-service training for school staff, health education and other health related issues that are present in the educational setting.  Questions or concerns surrounding your child’s health are best addressed with your student's school nurse.  Staff assignments and hyperlinks to the school nurses email can be found to the right.

    New State Law Allows Rub-on Sunscreen at School 

    As the weather improves, we are happy to share that Washington State recently passed a law that allows students to bring sunscreen to school and to self-apply it.  Parents are welcomed to take advantage of this opportunity to better protect their child’s health.  Please see the important directions below before sending sunscreen with your student. 

    • Students will apply the sunscreen to themselves. (School personnel are not required to assist students in applying sunscreen.)
    • Parents should instruct students not to share sunscreen with others, since many people are allergic to paba, a common ingredient.
    • Write the student’s name on the sunscreen container with a permanent marker.
    • Send ONLY rub-on sunscreen to school. 
      • Many students do not have the coordination to effectively apply spray sunscreen only on themselves.
      • Spray sunscreens in crowded school settings are a recipe for getting sunscreen in the eyes, mouths and noses of other students. 
      • Spray sunscreens are also particularly risky for students with asthma and other respiratory conditions.
    • Parents of younger children are encouraged to apply sunscreen to their students before school.
