Healthy, Safe, Ready to Learn
Welcome to the Health Services Department, where caring for students is our number one priority.
Health services in the Thompson School District are aligned with the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model to provide evidence-based, clinically-competent, quality care. Our nurses recognize that each student has unique health and safety needs that require an integrated, collaborative approach to address barriers and supports related to learning and health.
School health offices are staffed by highly-trained health assistants who are trained and supervised by school nurses. School nurses are regularly scheduled at multiple school sites and partner with parents and health care providers to design and implement the health services provided to all students.
