I am excited to welcome you into the building for the 2022-2023 school year! I am looking forward to working together to assure a safe and healthy year! The goal of the School Nurse is to support the educational process by promoting optimum wellness and working closely with scholars, parents/guardians, teachers and administrators; assess and evaluate the health need of scholars; and to accommodate scholars with specific health concerns.
Each year our students are placed into class advisories where they work closely with their advisors and fellow classmates. Spending half the day in these advisories, students develop deep connections as they collaborate on projects that challenge them to think critically and develop new skills.
