Health Services for Healthy Students
The Health Services Department at Richland School District's goal is to remove health barriers to students so that they can attend school. Our mission is better health, better learning. To accomplish our goal we have seven health services employees. The two District Nurses, Kelly Duncan and Laurie Roth, are both Credentialed School Nurses that service all four schools. Kelly is primarily responsible for students at Golden Oak and Richland Junior High whereas, Laurie oversees students at Sequoia and Redwood.

Health Staff

Each school site has a student health office that is staffed by a health aide: Sylvia Aguirre (Redwood), Carmen Garza (Sequoia), Cynthia Castro (Golden Oak), and Erica Lopez  (Jr. High). Lisa Abair is our District Health Clerk responsible for supporting both the health aides and the district nurses.
