Mission Statement:

DPS School Nurses want to ensure all students have equal access to quality health care, promote a healthier lifestyle through health education and optimal management of health problems, and encourage students to become more responsible and independent in making positive decisions regarding their health.

Department Services:

We are committed to a culture of excellence in the School Nurses’ Office and encourage parental involvement with student health issues.

We feel it is important to keep parents informed with the most up to date health-related information. During the school year, the “New Mexico Department Of Health“ will issue Health Alerts and Recommendations which will be posted on our page (see the tabs below). Parents will also be able to access current health information links which will contribute to the optimal health of children.
