This week we’re celebrating our school nurses! This year especially we want to shout from the rooftop: THANK YOU! School nurses serve our students in managing complex conditions, identifying mental health issues, leveling the field with regard to health disparities, and now, testing, tracking cases and vaccinating staff.
Next fall, we plan to reopen schools for in-person instruction five full days a week for students in Pre-K through grade 12, as long as public health authorities continue to support in-person learning.
