   Our health office is staffed by Kelly Baum, a certified school nurse. Our school has a health program that is designed to improve, protect and promote the health status of each child. Our goal in the health room is to provide a healthy learning environment for the children. In addition to providing emergency and sick care for your child, we provide yearly screenings and health counseling for various child and adolescent concerns. We are always here for you and your child. Please take a moment to review just a few of the ways that you can help ensure a healthy environment for students and staff.
  • Please DO NOT send your child to school sick. Always keep your child at home if a temperature and/or vomiting is present. Temperatures should be normal (less than 100.0 degrees without fever-reducing medicine) for 24 hours before he or she returns to school
  • Please notify the school nurse if your child develops a communicable disease or condition (chicken pox, head lice, impetigo, pink eye or ring worm)
  • Please make sure that children are dressed appropriately for the season and/or weather
  • Cough drops are permitted to be carried by the students


  • Any medication, including over-the-counter medicines to be administered at school MUST have a doctor's order. Please refer to our school calendar for the medication policy


I look forward to a healthy and successful school year. Please feel free to call me at the school if you have any questions.
