    The primary responsibility for the health of each child ultimately rests with the parent/guardian. The role of the health service is to supplement the efforts of the parents and/or guardians.

    The Thornton Township High School Health Services are performed in accordance with standards of professional school nurse best practice, district and state board of education policies and procedures, Pupil and Personnel Services Recommended Practices and Procedures for School Nursing, and Illinois State laws that regulate nursing practice.

    “You cannot educate a child who is not healthy, and you cannot keep a child healthy who is not educated.”

    -Jocelyn Elders, MD-former Surgeon General
