DISTRICT 113A HEALTH INFORMATION
Each District 113A health office is staffed by a Registered Nurse. The nurses provide emergency care for students who are injured at school or during school-related activities. The nurses also collaborate with parents to address the needs of chronically ill children so that the children can remain in school. Health office procedures and requirements are regulated by Illinois School Code and the Illinois Department of Public Health.
