School Nurse Wordle
As the district's only credentialed, licensed, qualified health professional, I support and advocate for student well-being,
safety, and equal access to academic success.
School nursing is a highly specialized field within the nursing profession that focuses on enhancing the overall well-being and educational achievements of students. School nurses play a crucial role in bridging the gap between school staff, families, the local community, and healthcare professionals. Their primary objective is to champion the health of students and cultivate a nurturing and health-conscious school environment.

Parents are encouraged to contact the District nurse if their child has a health condition impacting the child at school.
