Health Services Mission Statement 

The primary mission of the Mesa Public Schools Department of Health Services is to assist students to achieve optimal wellness in order to enhance their readiness to learn and achieve individual success.

Confidentiality Statement 

All individuals involved in processing information regarding student records or related data have a clear and positive responsibility to protect the privacy of the individuals involved. Violation of a student’s privacy could have serious repercussions. 

I understand the need to protect the privacy of the individual when processing confidential information. I will treat all data I have access to during my employment with Mesa Public Schools as confidential. I understand that all data must be handled in a manner that will protect individual rights or privacy and that no data is to be discussed or released to anyone.

Nurses’ Role

School nurses protect and promote student health, facilitate optimal development, and advance academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care-coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.

Health Assistant Role

The Health Assistant is under the supervision of the school nurse when on-site and, in the absence of the nurse, under the direction of the school principal and will support the school staff, students and families with confidentiality and professionalism. With a background as an EMT or Medical Assistant, the school Health Assistant will perform and assist the nurse with the day-to-day care of the office and students’ needs, state-mandated screenings, and special medical procedures per district guidelines for students with chronic health conditions.
