STUDENT SERVICESThe Student Services Department provides a range of support and interventions that are designed to enhance academic, social and emotional success as well as the over-all well-being of our students. Student Services work collaboratively with community agencies to offer prevention and interventions that address family issues, drug and alcohol problems, truancy and disciplinary concerns, teen pregnancy and physical and mental health concerns. Building-level support for instructional and administrative staff is a critical aspect of the Student Services mission, as is serving on Crisis Intervention teams and Community Health Committees. Student Services provide administrative oversight and support to the School Social Work, School Nurse, Health Services, Counseling and Homebound programs.
School Nurses Week
Lee County Schools is celebrating School Nurses Week from May 10 through May 14. School Nurses day is actually May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. The 2021 theme for the week is “Championing the Whole Student”. This theme recognizes the important role our school nurses play in integrating health and education to improve the cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of each of our students. Our school nurses do this each and every day; however, we would especially like to thank them for their outstanding commitment to students and staff this year. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to you for being here for our students and for our staff. This year our nurses have gone over and beyond to ensure the health and well being of all of us. Lee County Schools is blessed to have such an awesome team of School Nurse Champions! Thank you for all that you do! You are critical to our students’ success and to our staff’s well being!
