Health and Nursing Services
Cloquet Public Schools Health Services team collaborates with educational and support services within the schools and the community to promote and resolve health concerns which create barriers to learning. Our Health Services team is made up of a Licensed School Nurse/RN, LPNs and health paraprofessional. This team has a unique understanding of students’ physical, social and emotional health and resulting impact on learning.
Health Services Offices
Each school is staffed by either a RN/LPN or a Health Paraprofessional during school hours.
A Licensed School Nurse (LSN/RN) is available to all buildings on a fulltime basis to the LPNs and health paraprofessional by phone.
Building LPN and Health Paraprofessionals:
- Provide routine and emergency first-aid care to students and staff with illnesses and injuries.
- Provided care to students with chronic medical conditions as delegated by the LSN.
- Maintain documentation of immunizations and other health related services.
It is our goal to provide health related services which strengthen the educational process, in partnership with parents, community and school staff.
