The ND Department of Health/Coordinated School Health sent the "Health Guidelines for North Schools" manual, and its companion "Emergency Guidelines" manual, to all school district administrators in the state. It has a lot of useful information about different school health issues. If you don't have a copy, contact the Health Department (328-2356) or click this link to view/download it:
