The Health Room provides support for students who become ill or injured at school. In addition, the Health Room staff ensures that all vaccinations and emergency plans are current and conducts annual hearing & vision screenings.
The Health Room is open to students from 8:30-3:15 Monday through Friday and during ESS. The Health Room is staffed by our health room coordinator, Ann Marie Thompson, and parent volunteers.
Health room volunteering is a great service job. Parents select a day and time to work every other week. The daily morning shifts are from 8:30-10am. Afternoon shifts are offered on Monday and Wednesdays from 1:45-3:15pm.
If you have any questions, please email Ann Marie Thompson.
