Health Services

Healthy students are successful students

Our school staff provide a variety of services that support a healthy learning community. We are committed to providing students with health conditions access to their education by facilitating their independence and creating a community of support by working collaboratively with the student, their family and district staff. School nurses promote optimal student health for optimal learning. 

In-Person Attendance

Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic District 196 will be following the guidelines for attendance, exclusion and isolation established by the Minnesota Department of Health. Our nurses work with students and their families, staff and health care providers to develop plans supporting school attendance.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic

During the COVID-19 Pandemic it is especially important that: 

  1. You continue to consult with your health care provider regarding well-visits and immunizations
  2. Maintain good hygiene
  • Wash hands, don't touch your face
  • Regularly practice social distancing
  • Wear a face mask in public
  • Stay home when you aren't feeling well
  • Stay away from others who are ill 

Establish healthy habits early to ensure your child’s success

Instilling healthy habits and routines (adequate sleep/nutrition) and consistent attendance ensures a student’s success in school even as early as kindergarten. We know that too many absences/tardies, for whatever reason, can cause children to fall behind both academically and socially.

The school district will follow the guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health for recommended exclusion and notification for vaccine-preventable diseases including mumps, measles, rubella, pertussis, diphtheria, viral hepatitis, chickenpox and meningitis. Families will not be notified and students are not excluded for lice, pink eye or strep throat.
