School health programs in Dinwiddie County Public Schools support the physical and emotional well being of students through school nursing services, health education covering a range of developmentally appropriate topics and other services that promote a healthy learning environment.

Along with our school health advisory board (consisting of representation from parents, students, health professionals, educators and others) we strive to provide our students and parents with useful information for the general well-being of our students.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Director of Student Services Dr. Yardley Farquharson at the School Board Office by emailing YFarquharson@dcpsnet.org or calling 804-469-4190.
