Health Services

The nurses in the Orchard Farm School District serve all of the students in our five schools through direct services and through consultation with staff, family and administration. Nurses support all aspects of health and safety in the school community by providing emergency care, facilitating access to school health care, and identifying and managing health issues in the school that impede student learning. Every school has an assigned school nurse to provide health care to the students and staff during the school day. Some of these services include:

  • Providing care and first aid for illness and injury at school.

  • Maintaining the school’s communicable disease prevention and control program.

  • Providing health information and counseling for students, parents, and staff.

  • Safely storing, administering, documenting, and monitoring the effectiveness of medication given at school.

  • Identifying students with special health concerns and developing health care plans with students and families.

  • Maintaining accurate records to assure compliance with state mandates including immunizations, physical examinations, and medical conditions.

  • Providing health programs as required and needed including education and screening for vision, hearing & dental.

  • Being a resource for health and wellness for classroom teachers, staff and parents and providing expertise on health information and curriculum.

  • Communicating with students, families, staff and community agencies to identify and provide services and programs to meet the physical and mental health needs of children and families.

  • Collaborating with school multidisciplinary team of psychologist, social worker, and specialists to identify and provide health information, services, modifications, and plans for students.

  • Participating as crisis team members and providing crisis intervention for students and staff in the advent of sudden illness or injury.

Health Forms

Each year, for the health of our students, there is important medical paperwork that needs to be completed prior to the first day of school. These forms help keep all children safe at school. 

Students with significant allergies, asthma or seizures are required to have an updated Action Plan on file with our office that is reviewed and signed by a doctor annually. 

The state of Missouri also requires that all students attending public school be properly immunized. The St. Charles County Health Services Division immunizes school age children at no cost. An appointment is required. The phone number for the County Health Department is (636) 949-7400.

Please send your completed health forms to school prior to the first day of class. You may either send your forms to the school office, bring them to registration or open house, or fax them to 636-250-5204. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call 636-250-5219.
