Health Services

imgThe Mason City Schools Health Services staff is committed to meeting the daily health care needs of students as well as the educational and long term care needs associated with chronic illness in children. It is our goal to be a resource to parents and a partner to health care providers in our community. We function as advocates for students in the educational setting, focusing attention on students’ physical health and wellness, as well as their mental, social and emotional well-being.

The Mason City Schools Health Services staff welcomes you and your family to our district. As health care providers in the school setting, we welcome information regarding your child’s health and/or health needs. Please contact us and let us know how we can help your child transition to the Mason area with as little interruption to their health care as possibleHealth-Related Forms are available on the district website, and we are glad to answer any questions you may have.
