Healthy Children Learn Better!
Independent School District 191 Health Services consists of Nurses and Health Assistants and a Director of Health Services. Our staff is committed to providing the services needed so that our students are healthy, safe and ready to learn. Our district health offices:
- Monitor immunization status of students
- Manage health plans for students with health conditions
- Provide first aid and emergency care to students and staff
- Administer medication as ordered by a physician
- Maintain health service records
- Implement screening programs
- Surveillance of Communicable disease
Communication between the medical community and school(s) provides for positive health outcomes for students, families, and communities. Please let the Health Office staff know if your child has a chronic health condition and/or will require medication or treatment while at school. Completing the forms and returning them to the school nurse will enhance coordination of services and promote an optimal learning environment.
Non-emergency medical care is provided on a walk-in basis to children from birth through high school years. The clinic is located in the lower level of Diamondhead Education Center, 200 W. Burnsville Parkway in Burnsville. Learn more about Diamondhead Clinic.
IEP Health Related Services
If your child is evaluated to see if they are eligible for special education, and will receive Health Related Services as part of his or her Individual Education Program (IEP), the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District will share your child's name and date of birth with the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) to find out if your child is on Medical assistance or MinnesotaCare.
If you do not want the district to share your child's name and date of birth with DHS, you need to let us know in writing at least one week before we begin to do the evaluation. Send your request to: Tonette Reisinger, 200 W. Burnsville Parkway, Burnsville MN 55337. If you have questions call 952-707-2083 or email email@example.com.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Health Services staff at your school. Staff listing, policies and forms listed at left.
