Yuma Elementary School District One
ONE Community Pursuing Excellence

School Health Services

The mission of school nursing is to enhance the education of our students by removing health related barriers to learning and by promoting an optimal level of wellness. We abide by our motto: Health & Learning: the Critical Link to Student Success.

Four professional registered nurses, via a “cluster-school” model, provide health services and supervise 12 health assistants in District One schools. The clusters include five middle schools and two, three, or four elementary schools.

Concerns over COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Should the status of COVID-19 in Yuma County change, District One will communicate with parents/guardians in multiple ways to ensure you receive our messages. As a reminder, please ensure your child(ren)’s school has updated contact information to include: email address, home or cell phone number, and mailing address. Since the use of Blackboard Messaging is a useful tool, we encourage you to ensure you are enrolled to receive these messages.

Where can parents/guardians find updated information?
