Health Services

A top priority within the Kearney School District Health Services Department is the health and well-being of each student. Our main goal is to ensure each student is as healthy as possible to safely allow for adequate learning in the classroom setting. Open and ongoing communication between parents/guardians and our nurses is highly encouraged to help meet any needs that your child may have.
