 “You cannot educate a child who is not healthy and you cannot keep a child healthy who is not educated.”

--Jocelyn Elders, Former Surgeon General


Welcome to the health office. Our goal is to ensure academic success through optimal health and well-being.  The school nurse's role includes providing first aid, caring for acute and chronic medical conditions, completing state mandated screenings, and maintaining health records.  I am here to assist in promoting good health and maintaining a healthy, safe environment for students and staff that encourages a comfortable and productive learning atmosphere.   My role is to work in collaboration with you, the parents, and with others in the school system and in the community to foster healthy practices. Feel free to call the health office at any time to check on the well-being of your child or to voice concerns that may arise. If your child has a fever or symptoms which would interfere with normal classroom functioning, please make arrangements to keep him/her out until your child is able to perform in the classroom.

7th Grade Immunization and Physical Exam Report Information


Families of Seventh grade students are required to provide a copy of a physical examination.  In addition, the following immunizations will be required for all students entering seventh grade:

  • 1 dose Tdap 

Recommended vaccine:

  • Meningococcal vaccine 
  • HPV (Human Pappiloma Virus) a series of three recommended to begin at age 11-12

It is not too early to schedule an appointment with your child's physician to start the immunizations. It takes 4-6 months to complete the hepatitis B series. Please forward a copy of the physical exam along with proof of inmunizations to the school nurse prior to September 1. Failure to provide this information could result in exclusion of your child from school.

Students in grade 7 will also receive screenings for height, weight, vision, and hearing.

Should you wish your student not to be screened, please inform the nurse in writing.
