Health, Wellness, and Nutrition

Student health and nutrition are great factors in achieving success in school. Our school nurse, Laurel Yrun, R.N., provides our community with health-related services such as vision and hearing screenings, communicable disease information and prevention, and healthy nutrition education. Importantly, Laurel Yrun, R.N. supports learning through participating in Individual Education Plans and Section 504 Accommodation Plans.

To schedule an appointment or to discuss health issues with Laurel Yrun, R.N., please call one of the school offices: (415) 925-2220 for Bacich, or (415) 458-5970 for Kent or by email at



If your student has medication in the school office, it must be picked up by the last day of school. We cannot be responsible for any medication left in the school office over the summer. The entire Bacich office is relocating to the new building and we will be packing everything for the move.

Remember, if your student requires any medication, including over the counter medication, an Authorization to Administer form must be completed and signed with your health care provider. The medication provided needs to be in the original container and labeled with your child’s name.

Thank you and have a wonderful, healthy summer!

Laurel Yrun, RN, CCSN
