    Hazel provides all needed equipment for care; scale, thermometer, medical cart, iPad with stand, over-the-counter medications and more.

  • 4. Parent Information and Consent

  • As a school nurse, Hazel was a partner I could depend on. We helped so many more kids in ways I wouldn’t have been able to alone. Now I have three schools assigned to me and can’t see the kids in my new district the way I did with Hazel. They made my job easier by calling parents and delivering discharge notes after every visit. Hazel was a lifeline to the families.

    School District Nurse
  • With the help of Hazel, the needs of the whole child have been addressed. Multiple referrals to student support centers within District have been made to ensure follow up services for eye and hearing exams, bike helmets, food, dental services, replacements for lice-infested materials, education for the improvement of well-being, and the list goes on.

    School Social Worker
  • I have two boys and it costs $20 to get on the bus just to go one way. Usually my kids’ doctor’s office can’t see them right away. It takes 2 months to get an appointment. And normally it’s a rush job when we do get there. Having a school health option has been very helpful to a lot of parents who cannot afford to take off work, or cannot pay the bus fee.
