Health Services

The goal of the ISD #77 Health Services Team is to promote optimum health as the foundation for learning for all school aged children. 

The Mankato Public Schools Health Services Team includes licensed school nurses, building health assistants, and health secretaries. The team is committed to providing the services needed so students are healthy, safe and ready to learn.

  • Licensed School Nurses strive to advance partnerships with students, parents/guardians, families, school staff, community resources and health care providers in order to provide students with consistent school management of their health care needs.  Licensed School Nurses are an important part of the Student Support Services Teams in the school buildings.  
  • Health Assistants work in the school health offices and are under the direct supervision and direction of the Licensed School Nurses and building principals. The Health Assistants administer daily medications and treatments for students as prescribed by health care providers and as communicated by the Licensed School Nurse. Health Assistants communicate with parents/guardians, provide limited daily first aid and emergency care to students. 
  • Health Secretaries work with the Licensed School Nurses and Health Assistants to maintain accurate and up-to-date records of immunizations, health conditions and medication administration forms for students at all the public and non-public schools. 

All the Health Service Team Members strive to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all students. We partner with parents and students by requesting that they keep us informed of any known health conditions that may result in an emergency or require assistance during the school day.
