The Health & Wellness team provides basic first aid to students with minor injuries and illnesses.

The clinic staff members tend to students’ medical needs, maintain student medical records, conduct state-mandated health screenings, and communicate regularly with parents and staff members. The clinic staff members will administer medications/procedures to students with physician orders and parent consent forms when needed.


State law requires students attending school to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases.  You are encouraged to get your child vaccinated early to avoid the end-of-summer  vaccination  rush.  Getting your child vaccinated protects your child’s health and that of the community.  If necessary, please make an appointment to get your child vaccinated before the first day of school. Remember, students cannot attend school without the appropriate documentation for the required vaccines. 

Be sure your child is up to date on all immunizations. You can access the 2023-24 immunization form links below.

COVID-19 Reporting FAQ

Ensuring the health and safety of our Team & Family is a top priority at IDEA Public Schools, and we believe it is best to operate with an abundance of caution and transparency at this time. This is a chart of the number of positive cases of COVID-19 among students and staff who have been on campus for a specific week. You can search for a specific region, sort within each column, and access data for specific weeks. We report this information to the state on a weekly basis; they are monitoring the number of positive cases across school districts in all states and update on the state’s health services website.

If there is a positive student or staff case on campus, staff and families are notified.

Finally, based on the contact tracing process and consultation with the local health department, we may inform additional staff members and families that they need to quarantine for 14 days as recommended by the local health department. Due to HIPAA considerations, we are cannot share more details about the individual’s diagnosis, but rest assured we are taking the proper steps to protect our students and staff from any potential spread.

It takes a community and collective effort to protect each other. We all play a role in keeping ourselves, our loved ones, and our Team & Family safe. This means that all of us must follow the expert-recommended health and safety protocols:

  • Monitor your health daily and stay alert for symptoms like fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Stay home if you are sick and follow CDC guidelines.
  • Wear a mask.
  • Practice proper hand hygiene. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds frequently.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick or anyone outside your immediate household. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid and limit being exposed the virus.
  • Use recommended resources like the CDC’s Coronavirus Self-Checker to determine when to seek testing or medical care.
  • Immediately contact the school if you are awaiting test results or receive a lab-confirmed positive test result, or if you have been in close contact with someone who is awaiting results or is a positive case. It is important for the communication among all of us to be transparent and informative.
