Welcome to the Nurses Corner. On this site, you will be able to find out what is going on related to health at my schools. I will try to keep a calendar of events and things for you to look at for each month. I also have included to the right --> of this page, forms you may need throughout the year for health concerns with your child. Please feel free to download these and sent to me as conditions change.
Since West and Foothills are in the same building, I am there most days but I would call first if planning to visit me.
Normally my hours are 8 am - 3 pm.
Middle School Brings Changes.... Especially Odors....
Moving up to Middle school brings lots of changes to your child's life. New school, new schedules, new friends and new smells. As your young child is growing into a young lady or man, their body is also changing. As puberty kicks in new odors develop. Sweat glands go into overdrive, especially with daily PE Classes. It is important that all students bathe daily and wear clean clothes. Teaching them how to do this is important. At this age, students should know how to keep themselves clean, wash their hair, brush their teeth and use deodorant. It is also a good time to start teaching them how to wash their clothes. We suggest they keep an extra deodorant in their lockers and even possibly a change of clothes. Accidents do happen and we may not have anything available in their size. I do keep in the nurse's office extra supplies such as deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, shampoos, lotions, soaps and feminine products. They are in bins/baskets just inside my door. Students can drop in and get whatever they need at any time. We also have a clothes closet downstairs with some items. Counselors can take them down to look if needed. This being said, please don't hesitate to ask for things, if you have needs at home. We all have been through times of needs in our lives. We are there for your child in all situations. Just give us a call.
