Elizabeth Schools Health Services addresses the health needs of all students and staff for the Elizabeth School District. Health Services consists of one district nurse who trains school personnel in each building to implement a plan of action to ensure the safety of all the students.
All schools have an identified person who is an Unlicensed Assistive Personnel (UAP) (Health Technician or Office Staff), who acts in a complementary role to the professional nurse. The nurse delegates to the UAP the general safety plans involving CPR, basic first aid, the care of students with chronic health conditions, the care of ill students, and medication administration.
Vision and hearing screening is conducted for students in their schools according to the Colorado Department of Education guidelines. These guidelines indicate that students in kindergarten, first, second, third, fifth, seventh and ninth grades receive vision and hearing screening.

Starting the 2022-23 school year, the Elizabeth School District will be enforcing the new requirements for non-medical immunization exemptions.
All incoming 6th graders to Elizabeth Middle School are required to have a Tdap vaccination or to provide a current medical or non-medical exemption to the school's health office.
If your student is not up to date on his/her vaccinations, or does not have a current medical/nonmedical exemption on file with the school, a notice of vaccination requirement will be emailed or sent home. Parents have 14 days to provide the updated vaccination record, to provide a plan developed by your student's healthcare provider to get your student compliant with vaccinations, or to provide a completed vaccination exemption form.
