The Healthy Student program is the commitment of the Pasco County School District and is intended as an effort to help students remain in school, ready to learn. Services available to students enrolled in the Healthy Student Program may include:
- Management of acute illness or injury and the administration of limited medications, following physician guidelines and protocols (i.e. ibuprofen, Tylenol, Motrin, Robitussin, Tums, antifungal ointment, Benadryl, hydrocortisone, etc.).
- Observation and follow up re: communicable diseases (i.e. pink eye, ringworm, etc.).
- A health professional will communicate with you about your child’s particular health findings that may require an evaluation, follow up or referral.
Healthy Student Program services are offered at no direct cost to the family and all students are eligible, regardless of insurance
The main purpose of the Healthy Student Program is to improve school attendance and to reduce health problems that occur during the school day. A student may be withdrawn from the Healthy Student Program at any time by the parent or the school health services staff with written notice.
