Health and Safety


The 24-hour health center staff sign directly with students.

Is your child healthy? Their learning depends on it.  Along with providing meals planned by dietary specialists, we provide 24-hour health center right on campus. Here, students can be cared for when injured or ill, and medications can be given when needed. ISD’s campus is smoke-free, tobacco-free, drug-free and alcohol-free. Our goal is to keep your child at the top of their game physically, and academically.

To that end, Iowa School for the Deaf has established a school wellness policy assessment tool, incorporating nutrition and exercise goals and plans. To view the tool, click HERE. To view the school wellness policy, click HERE.


Safety is priority #1 at ISD. Our facilities comply with state and federal safety guidelines. Our dorms have full-time, live-in staff ‘house parents’ and every visitor to our school registers at building entrances. A comprehensive emergency operations plan is continually practiced and changed as needed.
