    The goal of the health services is to provide a safe and healthy environment for students to stay in school and learn to the best of their abilities. This includes immunization compliance, administering prescriptions and over the counter medications, developing emergency care plans, chronic condition monitoring, vision and hearing screenings, scoliosis screenings, collaborating with a dental hygienist to provide cleanings at school and providing families with relevant health information. The health services work closely with local public health and Minnesota Department of Health.

    The flu is widespread across the region and state. We are starting to see a few cases in school. Please remember to stay home until fever has been below 100.0F for 24 hours.

    Symptoms of the flu include: fever, dry cough, sore throat, headache, extreme tiredness, and body aches. This is different than the "stomach flu" or nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
