Health and Nursing Services

Our health and nursing services department strives to provide compassionate and comprehensive health services for all children in the ADM Schools.  Meeting the needs of our students in terms of physical well-being ensures that each child is able to focus on achievement inside and outside of the classroom, and is key in facilitating the development of a healthy lifestyle that will promote long-term success.

Immunization Information
Did you know that all children attending school in Iowa must have a current and valid immunization record? Immunizations must include doses of Tdap, Polio, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR), Hepatitis B, and Varicella. In the State of Iowa, a current and valid immunization record must be on file before the first day of school. Starting with the 2017-18 school year, ADM will enforce the measure that a student may be excluded from school until their file shows compliance with Iowa Immunization Law.
