School Health Services

Welcome to School Health Services! 

Health services are provided to Englewood Schools through consultation from the Children’s Hospital Colorado School Health Program. The school nurse consultant functions as a liaison between Children’s Hospital, the community, and the school by providing information, referrals, and resources.  The nurse consultant assists schools to provide the safest, most appropriate health care within the school setting.

Each RN consultant covers several schools in the district and can be reached during school hours by cell phone.

Marisa Beauchaine, BSN, RN, CPN, AE-C

 

Mandy Lopez, MSN, RN

 

The health office in each school building is staffed with a health assistant (hours vary), who is employed by Englewood Schools to assist students with daily health needs. Please call the main office at your child's school to reach the health office.
