SVSD Health Services Department
As a department, our focus is supporting student health and
academic success. We are committed to
contributing to a healthy and safe environment in which all students can learn.
Our staff is comprised of a supervising school nurse, an elementary lead school
nurse, several school nurses and health room assistants. We work closely with
students, their families and school staff to promote better health and greater
learning. Our team is responsible for mandated health screenings, immunization
compliance, assessment of student health needs, development and implementation
of required individual health/emergency plans, in-service training for school
staff, health education and other health related issues that are present in the
educational setting. Questions or concerns surrounding your child’s health are best addressed with your student's school nurse. Staff assignments and hyperlinks to the school nurses email can be found to the right.
Health Notifications for SVSD Families
12/8/2016 Mumps: Public Health of Seattle and King County have released a Health Advisory regarding six confirmed cases of mumps and 30 probable cases. Mumps is an illness caused by a virus that can cause fever, headache, and swelling of the cheeks and jaw. Most people recover from mumps in a few weeks. In rare cases, mumps can lead to more serious complications that may require hospitalization, including inflammation of the brain and spinal cord and deafness. Up to 30% of people with mumps infection will have no symptoms. Click here for mumps information from King County Public Health. If a student has these symptoms, parents should contact their healthcare provider, even if the student was vaccinated. Public Health recommends: "Stay home from work and school until five days after swelling in the cheeks and jaw started because a person is contagious until that point." There are no known cases in Snoqualmie Valley schools as this time.
