Health Room

Welcome to the Parkland High School Health Room

The goal of health services personnel is to assure that children maintain the best possible health in order to benefit from and enjoy their school experiences. The Health Room Staff at Parkland High School is available to administer first aid for illness or injury sustained at school. Should a student become ill or sustain an injury at school, the student should request permission from the teacher to go to the Health Room. If necessary, the School Nurse will contact a parent or guardian.

The School Nurse cannot be responsible for the diagnosis or treatment of student illness.
