Health Services

  • Welcome to the ISD 728 Health Services Department website. Our department's goal is to create and sustain a school environment that promotes and supports student achievement, health, and well-being. Research shows that healthy students are better learners.

    Please note:  Students are expected to participate in all activities, including outdoor recess and physical education, unless a physician's order is received.  The order must include the reason for the restriction, length of restriction, and physician's signature.
