The Department of Health and Human Services, School Health Services in partnership with MCPS provides services to assure health, safety, and well-being of students at Kingsview Middle School.
The Health Room Staff is available to provide care to the students during the school day. Some of these services include assessing the health needs of the students, providing first aid and emergency care to sick or injured students, administering medications and treatments to students who have doctors’ orders, providing crisis intervention, health counseling, nurse case-management and referrals. We also assist families of eligible uninsured students to enroll in the Maryland Children’s Health Plan (MCHP) and Care for Kids Programs. If we can be of assistance, please contact us.
