Health Services

Courtsey and with permission from the Ventura County Star

The mission of the Health Services Department is to make sure that the health care needs of all of the students in the Simi Valley Unified School District are met while at school.  School Nurses participate in the care of students who have health conditions like diabetes, seizure disorders and severe allergies that are potentially life threatening.  

The Health Services staff for Simi Valley Unified School district consists of 7.6 full-time school nurses and one administrative assistant. The School Nurse’s role is to coordinate with the parents and the doctors to insure that preparations are in place should a health emergency occur.  This requires the training of school staff to handle these emergencies. School staff assists nurses in the case of any health emergency. All of the nurses are available by phone and/or beeper to go to schools for emergencies and when called to answer questions from school staff. School nurses also attend to any health care needs for students requiring daily nurse care. 

School Nurses perform a variety of other vital functions.They are the main teachers for the district’s Family Life Sex Education Program. They oversee the District’s immunization requirements and health and dental examination requirements. They assist in meeting the state requirements for mandated hearing and vision screening. School Nurses are also a part of the Special Education Assessment Team. Their responsibility on this team is for the vision and hearing testing and the health and developmental histories for all special education assessments.  

Our School Nurses are dedicated to helping keep the students of Simi Valley healthy!
