The Health Services department consists of nurses with specialized expertise in addressing the well-being, academic success and lifelong achievement of students. The nurses accomplish this through: facilitating positive responses to normal development, by promoting wellness, health and safety, by intervening in actual or potential health problems; by collaborating with other staff to address student needs for self-management, by working as case managers, student advocates and educators. In addition, the nurses advocate for health and wellness promotion to parents and the surrounding community. For more information, contact the special services department at 636-327-3800 ext. 20342.
