Thank You to Our Kind and Caring School Nurses!

Picture of school nursesIt is National School Nurse Week, a week to recognize and say thanks to our hard-working 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!

Jordan School District Launches First “Unified Golf” Program in Utah

ItTwo Jordan School District students participate in a Unified Golf event is a program bringing students of all abilities together creating a fast and meaningful path to fun, friendship and understanding. First Lady Abby Cox was on hand as Jordan School District launched the first ever “Unified Golf” program in the State of Utah.

“Unified Golf” is an opportunity for middle school students with and without disabilities to come together as friends and play together on a team in competitive golf. The Glenmoor Golf Course team has been working hard to make “Unified Golf” a reality. Students received a quick lesson in using a golf club, swinging, putting and just enjoying the game and each other.

This program, which is part of Unified Sports, is a statewide effort to foster greater empathy and understanding of students with disabilities and to encourage more inclusion and opportunities for all students.
