Detroit Lakes Public Schools employs one Licensed School Nurse (LSN) district wide. A Health Assistant or the building secretary will be responsible for your child's health needs when the nurse is not available.
What we do?
The licensed school nurse together with the health assistants and strive to maintain, improve, and promote good health for students. First aid, care of illness, medication administration and other health procedures are done through the school health office. Each student visit to the office is documented. Our staff provides and plans direct services for students needing health services, coordinates hearing and vision screenings which includes making referrals, immunization review and provides health consultation and education to students, staff and families.
During COVID-19 our District Nurse, Jean Schwartz, is deemed our COVID coordinator.
