Welcome to the Nurses’ Office!


Mary Cannon, RN and Shelly Robinson, RN


A student’s health status affects his or her ability to learn; children with unmet health needs have a difficult time performing academically. The school nurse supports student success by providing health care through assessment, intervention and follow-up, e.g. caring for the sick and injured, screenings (vision, hearing and posture), immunization and attendance review, referrals and more.


Some helpful reminders to assure your child and other students are attending a safe and healthy learning environment:


  • Keep your child home until his or her fever has been gone for 24 hours WITHOUT medication-returning too soon may slow the recovery period and expose others to illness.


  • Always encourage plenty of water, rest and a nutritious breakfast for improved attention.


  • Contact the school nurse for extended illnesses.


  • Provide notes within 2 days of an absence (school policy).


Thank you
