    Committed to the health and wellness of our students

    Lake Washington School District is committed to the health and wellness of our students. Each school has a registered nurse available to provide a range of services. At the beginning of each year nurses collect student health information to plan for needs during the school day.

    School nurses strive to ensure all students can fully participate in educational programs. This starts with daily attendance and includes being well-rested, well-fed, and ready to learn. Our goal is for all students to be successful in school.

    School Nurses

    Lake Washington School District (LWSD) nurses practice professional nursing and provide school health services designed to:

    • Promote health and safety
    • Intervene with actual and potential problems

    • Actively collaborate with students, families, communities, school staff and district employees

    Names and contact information for the nurse at each school are listed below.
