Health Services

Because health is essential to optimal learning, the Maricopa Unified Health Services Staff provide support and services to manage students with illnesses and accidents that occur during the school day. Registered nurses and medical assistants strive to ensure all students achieve their potential in school, career and life by unifying students, staff, curriculum and community in a safe, supportive, challenging, empowering and innovative learning environment.

When meeting the student's health needs during the school day, nursing staff also use the opportunity to teach students to make wise choices that will be beneficial to their future health. Contact the nursing staff directly by email or by calling the extensions numbers listed. You may also leave a message for the department by contacting the Nursing Director Marilyn Wyant at 520-568-5100 ext.1020 or email mwyant@musd20.org.
