School Nursing

Centerville City Schools is committed to meeting the daily health care needs of students as well as the educational and long-term care needs associated with illness in children. It is our goal to be a resource and partner to parents and health care providers. School nurses advocate for students in the educational setting, focusing attention on students’ physical health and wellness, as well as their mental, social and emotional well-being.

School nurses work and oversee the operations of school health clinics in each building, along with assistance from other registered nurses. Health-related forms are available on the district website, and the nurses are glad to answer any questions you may have.
