Safe & Healthy Learning Environments

The mission of Des Moines Public Schools Health Services is to support student success by providing a safe and healthy learning environment and addressing health related barriers to learning. Every school in the district has a dedicated school nurse who can be a primary source of information in student health related matters.

For more information about student health services, please see the links to the right and the student information handbook.  If you have questions over the summer, please contact the district’s Health Services Supervisor.
