•   Welcome To The Nurse's Office



    Welcome to all students, parents, and guardians! The primary purpose of the Socorro Independent School District's school health program is to promote, protect, maintain, and improve student, staff, and community health to its optimal level. The program assures a safe and healthy environment that is conducive to learning. Professional nursing care is provided for the individual who becomes ill or injured while attending school. Essential functions of school health services include health screenings, referrals to parents and follow-up, networking with other community providers, health promotion, injury, and disease prevention. The School Nurse works with the student, parents, educators, and other community resources to help the student advance through the various stages of life. The school health program is not a substitute for the health care that parents should provide for their children. This program is established to encourage individuals to use the services of health care professions and/or community health agencies. (SISD Health Services)
