The Alachua County Public School Health Services program provides professional and compassionate health care to students during their school day.  It is our mission to promote and maintain the physical and mental well being of our students to ensure their success at school.  As nurses, we encourage healthy lifestyles.  School health staff follow Health Handbook procedures which are updated yearly by the School Health Advisory Council.  The School Health Plan is also updated yearly and outlines specific nursing interventions for the school year.  Parent and staff involvement and input is welcome. 


    All students are required to have a Tdap booster prior to entering seventh grade.  Please make sure that your student's vaccines are up to date and the school has an updated form 680 on file.  If you have any questions please contact me at 955-6718 ext 4811 or
