Health Services


School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.


The HPISD Health Clinics are designed to treat chronic health conditions, minor injuries and to care for students who have become ill during the school day. Should a student become ill, only the persons designated as an Emergency contact in Skyward will be allowed to pick up the student. All telephone numbers must be updated immediately if changes occur during the school year. 


The school health program is no substitute for the health care which parents should provide for their children. Rather than relieving parents’ responsibilities, this program is established to encourage individuals to utilize the services of a private physician, dentist, optometrist, and/or community health agencies.
