The Rains ISD Health Services Department works with students, parents, teachers and other school and community professionals to remove health barriers to learning. The purpose of school health is:
•to enhance the learning process by creating a safe and healthy school environment for students to exist in.
•to promote a health-conscious lifestyle for the student to result in the ability of that student to function productively.
•to keep well and happy children in school a maximum number of days.
•to teach children wholesome and healthy attitudes toward physical, mental, and moral growth.
•to motivate and cultivate positive health habits and self esteem.
•to reduce the incidence of student morbidity and absenteeism related to accidents, illness, and communicable disease.
The health and well-being of each student is a collaborative effort between parents, guardians, community, and the school. It is imperative that you keep the school informed of changes with medications, medical conditions and contact information so that we can be best prepared in emergency situations.
