Health Services

Welcome to Health Services!

Robbinsdale Area Schools Health Services Department seeks to create and sustain a school environment that promotes and supports student health, well-being, and academic achievement. Research shows healthy students are better learners. 

Students are expected to participate in all activities, including outdoor recess and physical education, unless an order is received from a licensed health care provider. The order must include the reason for the restriction, length of restriction, and health care provider signature. 

Nurturing Healthy Learners

  • Frequent hand-washing remains the single most effective way to reduce illness!

  • Students need 8-10 hours of sleep. Promote healthy sleep habits.

  • Good nutrition is directly related to the ability to learn. Encourage a healthy breakfast.

  • Good attendance is critical for learning. All students should strive for a 95% or better attendance record (one day absence per month average).

  • Regular exams with medical and dental providers help to prevent health problems. See your Licensed School Nurse (LSN) for available resources.

  • Daily physical exercise is important. Limit your child’s electronic usage time.
