San Juan Unified School District Health Services will enhance the health and well-being of students and families, enabling them to learn and reach their full potential.
Health Services Philosophy
The Health Services Department believes that healthy children learn better. We serve as advocates for children by assisting families and communities to manage and minimize health concerns, thereby allowing students to achieve educational standards. As members of multi-disciplinary teams, we promote education and knowledge by addressing health care needs that are barriers to school attendance and healthy behaviors.
Health Services Program
School Health Services refers to those health-related procedures, assessments, education and referrals coordinated at the school site by a credentialed school nurse. Health Services are an essential part of comprehensive health. Their provision demonstrates a commitment to the well-being of every student and puts into action the basic philosophy of prevention.
