Children need to be healthy to learn, and educated to be healthy. The Poplar Bluff School District has a comprehensive, integrated approach to health. Health and Education must work together to meet the needs of the children. The District believes that all people can learn and that the quality of learning directly affects the quality of life. The Health Services Department supports those beliefs and works toward the assurance that all students are healthy and therefore better able to learn. Optimal learning requires good health.
Our highly qualified staff are dedicated to providing health services to students, faculty and staff and to aid children and youth in developing their potential, both physically and academically. This service is to help student's maintain their individual optimum health thereby enabling them to take advantage of the educational opportunities. We will take every opportunity to offer health educational information to students, staff and parents.
