SMHS Health Services 6-8
                         
School health services are designed to meet the goals and priorities of education as well as health.  The program becomes clearly evident when the focus remains on the needs of children and youth, and on our mutual goal of a healthy child who is prepared to maximize his/her opportunity to learn and grow in preparation for a healthy and productive life.  Health is the key to the basics of education and should be part of the continuum of school services available to every student.
Health Services are largely the responsibility of the school nurse working collaboratively with others within the school community and as a liaison to establish and nurture networks and linkages with the health and social systems as well as the private sector of the community at  large.  School Health Programs are most productive when collaborative efforts are preventive  in their focus and epidemiological in their approach.
The health problems of school children today include not only problems related to physical defects, disease and injury, but also those related to behavioral, emotional, and developmental lags.  The range of services needed extends beyond the simple identification and control of contagious disease.  School nurses today have responsibility not only for disease prevention and health protection, but also for initiating activities that promote positive health behaviors relevant to the child's developmental stage, educational level and ability to accept and assume self care and self control.
