IMPORTANT HEALTH INFORMATION
District 203 Health Service Philosophy:
School Health Services recognize that an individual’s education and growth is related to their physical, mental and emotional well being.
District 203 Believes:
Each individual is valuable and the development of his/her potential is the first responsibility of education.
The acquisition of skills necessary to maintain a healthy state is a cardinal component of education.
An effective school health program requires the cooperative involvement of family, school, community agencies, and medical disciplines.
School Health Services provides a unique contribution to the development of concepts of wellness in students, families, and community.
A maturing student should be able to face social situations and life problems with increasing judgment as to his/ her role and acceptance of it. Recognition of health issues should be fostered as a civic responsibility.
