Health Services

The Murray District nursing staff provides emergency care for those hurt or ill at school, makes home visits when necessary, consults with physicians on students’ health problems and teaches first aid courses to district personnel. Through association with community organizations, eye glasses are purchased for many Murray students who can’t afford them. Murray area dentists also provide some dental care to students who cannot afford services.
