ACPS School Nurses and Health Services
Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) is fortunate to have a registered nurse in every school. These experienced health care professionals are available during the entire school day to respond to the health care needs of students.
In addition to the traditional school nurse activities, our school health program has several special projects which are positively impacting the health of our school community.
Mandated vaccines can be obtained from pediatricians or primary care providers. If your student does not have a primary care provider, the Alexandria Health Department has immunization clinics.
