School Nurse

Meet the School Nurse

Hello, my name is Scott Skoglund. I am your school nurse. Parents and staff call me "Scott" and students call me "Nurse Scott". I am here to support you and the physical, mental, and nutritional health of your children in a safe environment so they can be at their best to have fun and learn. By working with parents and guardians who know and love their children more than anyone else, I am best prepared to support their children when they are at school. These are challenging times so please know I want to be a resource for your family. Please email, call, or text if you have a question, want to double check something, or are looking for help to find access to health care, immunizations, mental health supports, food, or emergency housing.

Prepare for Your Student’s Health at School

Please report any health issue your child has that could impact safety and learning at school to the school nurse. Examples include: Seizures, diabetes, asthma, life-threatening allergic reaction, cancer treatment, and anemia.

To report an issue, you can contact the nurse directly by phone or email, fill out the online student verification form on The Source (September 1-30), or fill out the Annual Student Health Update paper form (on the district  Health Services Forms page).

Washington state law requires that school staff and parents/guardians plan together for the safe care of their child throughout the school day. Providing medications and/or medical treatments needed for the care and safety of your child while at school requires the school nurse receive written permission and instructions by both parent/guardian and their health care provider on the applicable Seattle Public School form.

  • Medication at School:   The  Authorization for Medications Taken at School form  (on this linked  Health Services Forms page) applies if any medication (prescription and not prescription) needs to be taken at school (even if only for a few days).
  • Medical Treatments at School : The  Authorization for Treatments and Procedures to be Performed at School form  (on this linked  Health Services Forms page) applies if a student needs a treatment at school. Some treatment examples are: G-tube feeding, insulin calculation, clean urinary catheterization, suctioning, nebulizer, dressing change, and others.


Free Health Services

Students can access additional health services beyond what is available at Orca K-8 School through enrolling in one of the 16 different school-based health centers located throughout Seattle in some of our Seattle Public Schools.

Services are available to all Seattle Public School students, regardless of their ability to pay. If you have insurance, it may be billed.

Some of the services provided include flu vaccination, other immunizations, sports physicals, prescriptions, reproductive healthcare, mental health counseling, lab tests, and nutrition counseling.
