Welcome to the Nurse's Office


Welcome students. Please feel free to visit the nurse's office whenever you are ill or if you have concerns that are private and require some medical direction or immediate attention. Remember that the nurse's office has a variety of resources for you and that we are here to help. If you have any issues or concerns that you do not feel comfortable addressing in school, please talk to you parent, family member, medical professional, counselor, or other trusted adult. You never need to work out significant problems on your own!
