School Health

The School Health Division works to support student learning by improving student health and fulfilling school health requirements mandated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The School Health Division provides services to twenty-eight (28) public schools. Each school serviced has a dedicated school nurse.

Your school nurse serves as a health resource to you and your child, and is a link between home and school regarding health concerns. Your school nurse provides nursing care for accidents, illnesses and other medical situations. Your school nurse is also there to assist in promoting good health and in maintaining a healthy, safe environment for staff and students. Please feel free to contact the school nurse at your child's school with any health concerns or questions you may have.


Lowell Public School students visit the nurse's office on a daily basis for a variety of needs.  School nurses help keep students learning in the classroom and on target with educational guidelines.
