    The School Health Program aims to promote the health and well being of the school community. Services provided through the health office include emergency care, assessment and intervention with health issues, medication administration, health counseling and routine health screenings.

    Parents are encouraged to communicate with the school nurse regarding their child’s health concerns. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
