"You cannot educate an unhealthy child, and you cannot keep an uneducated child healthy." -- Dr. Jocelyn Elder
Because we recognize the role that children's health plays in their ability to learn, each of our schools provides a health office.
The health office is staffed by a full-time health assistant, trained in CPR, first aid, and office management, and a school nurse, who may be responsible for more than one school.
If your child has specific health concerns, you are welcome to make an appointment to discuss them with the school nurse. The school health office will work closely with your child's doctor in providing best practice management of diabetes, asthma, and life-threatening allergies.
The health office provides many services to students, including first aid, administering prescribed medications, and health screenings. Some of the annual health screenings we offer include dental health, yearly height and weight measurements, and hearing and vision assessments. We conduct these annual assessments with one goal in mind: to remove possible barriers to your child's learning.
At Tucson Unified, promoting children's health goes hand-in-hand with providing quality education.
