Thank You to Our Kind and Caring School Nurses!

Our nurses are responsible for the health and well-being of thousands of students throughout Jordan School District.

They serve our schools by teaching staff about important health care matters, doing vision screenings, Individual Health Care Plans, treating our students with allergies, diabetes, asthma and many other conditions. They participate in 504 meetings, IEP meetings, State School Nursing meetings, and so much more.

Our school nurses work hard, and do it with smiles on their faces! We could not do the important work we do as a District without our amazing school nurses.

Don’t forget to thank your school nurse this week!
