School nurses - they're more than just the ones who hand out cough drops, fix tummy aches, and apply band-aids. They're the caring hearts behind the scenes, ensuring each student in USD 495 receives essential vision, hearing, and dental screenings.

These screenings, following guidelines put in place by the State of Kansas, play a vital role in a child's development. The sooner we detect any vision, hearing, or dental issues, the faster we can provide the support they need. That's a big win for their social, mental, and physical health.

Families might hear from our school nurses if there's a concern about their child's screening results. Please remember, while these screenings offer valuable insights, they aren’t a substitute for a thorough assessment by specialized healthcare professionals.

DEFINITION OF SCHOOL NURSING: School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge healthcare and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.
