Overview

The Puyallup School District Health Services team believes that optimal health is essential for maximum utilization of educational opportunities; therefore, the health status of the child bears a direct relationship to the quality of his or her educational achievement.

We provide a student-centered, collaborative approach to learning and health in partnership with students' families and the school community that will propel us towards our goal of supporting student health and academic success by contributing to a healthy and safe school environment.
