From your District Nurse - Welcome to Health Services

 

Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District is responsible for the health of your child while in school.  We do this through immunization monitoring, trainings and emergency care.  Each comprehensive high school has a “health clerk” who maintains immunization records.  This person also assists injured or ill students to receive prompt attention (either from a parent or designee).  The LGSUHSD District Nurse is responsible for assessing the health needs of students, developing emergency care plans, and complying with laws related to student health.  The Credentialed District Nurse communicates with parents, students, and physicians to develop comprehensive health care plans for students with health needs.  The Credentialed District Nurse is also available as a resource to the entire school community.  We look forward to working with the school community to help each student come to school Ready to Learn.

“Healthy Children Learn Better”

 

 

Individualized Health Care Plans

Parents/guardians are to notify the school if their student has any medical conditions that may affect his/her ability to learn,(  e.g., Diabetes, Seizures, Asthma, Severe Allergies, etc.) This will allow the Credentialed School Nurse to develop a plan to provide appropriate care in an emergency.  The Credentialed School Nurse will develop an individualized health care plan for the student.  The student’s safety and health is always a top priority.  Emergency action plans are developed based upon conditions reported by parents/guardians.
