At West Platte, our students are our most valuable resource. We are dedicated to making sure that students are safe and healthy throughout the day. Research has shown that when students’ basic needs are met, their success increases, reduction in absenteeism, and improvement in physical fitness and mental alertness.
The West Platte School District provides a registered nurse for the elementary, middle school and high school. Our school nurse is a professional registered nurse specializing in identification, assessment, prevention and intervention to remedy or modify students’ health needs. The school nurse monitors required immunizations, health screenings, and maintains communication with parents, when needed.
At West Platte, parents/guardians will receive a form from the nurse to keep on file in case a student has a medical emergency at school or a school related function and the parent/guardian cannot be reached. Also, parents/guardians should provide information about pre-existing medical conditions, allergies, and medications etc.
