Student Health Services
VSDB is well prepared to meet the healthcare needs — routine as well as acute — of both residential and day students when they are on campus. We encourage each child to obtain optimum health and wellness while maximizing his or her educational potential.
Our Student Health Center (SHC) is located in Bass Hall in close proximity to the schools, gym, playground, and cafeteria. When students are on campus, the SHC is staffed from 6:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. registered nurses and a certified nursing assistant. First aid and routine care is provided for students with diabetes, seizures, asthma, hormone deficiencies, allergies, and other medical conditions.
Partnering with families
The SHC assists families to maintain yearly requirements for physical and dental exams. A mobile dental team and vision clinic are available to help families obtain those services. Flu vaccines are offered free of charge.
VSDB nurses have diverse clinical expertise. They work under the direction of contracted pediatric physicians who are available by telephone 24 hours a day while students are in residence.\
