Greeley-Evans School District 6 Health Services
Health Services Mission:Our mission is to increase student achievement by supporting the education of all students through prevention and accommodation of health related barriers to learning. We strive to maintain the physical, mental and social health of children so they can benefit maximally from their educational opportunities. We also try to assist students to develop positive health attitudes and practices so that they can assume responsibility for their own health after leaving the school community.
Who Are We?
