Hawaii Keiki School Health Program

About the Hawaii Keiki Health Program

Did you know there is a nurse in the health room to work with the School Health Assistant (SHA) in supporting your child’s health and education? Kaimuki-McKinley-Roosevelt Complex Area is staffed with a Hawai‘i Keiki registered nurse (RN).

Why is this important? Because keeping your child in school keeps them in class, which keeps them learning. 

There’s no cost to you for any services your child may receive. However, we need your insurance information in case we need to bill them for certain services. Students without health insurance can still get care from the RN at no cost.
