Welcome to FAMS Health Office!
The health office is open to all students and staff members at FAMS. The goal of our health office is to promote optimal health, physically, emotionally, and socially while providing a safe and caring environment. Student and staff wellness is paramount!
As former US Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders, MD, once said, "You cannot educate a child who is not healthy, and you cannot keep a child healthy who is not educated."
The FAMS health office always strives to maintain overall wellness. Wellness does not just matter - it is critical. It is critical not just for the student, but for teachers and staff as well!
Parents and guardians are encouraged to contact the health office with any questions or concerns throughout the year. Welcome to the FAMily.
