Welcome to the Long Prairie-Grey Eagle Health Services web page. This page contains health information that applies to all schools in Long Prairie-Grey Eagle school district.

School Nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. School nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning.

The mission of Long Prairie-Grey Eagle Health Services is to promote optimal health for optimal learning.
