Staying Healthy

Staying Healthy Children
  • Families and schools can work together to support the health of students.  Delaware public schools provide a full-time Registered Nurse, who supports students with chronic health conditions, like asthma or diabetes, and with acute health conditions, like a playground injury or a throat infection.  There are many things families and schools can provide to support healthy students, like offering nutritious foods, allowing time for physical activity, supporting emotional health, and collaborating to manage chronic health conditions.  Some supports are more easily provided by schools, like routine health screenings, and other supports can only come from families, like ensuring adequate sleep each night.
