The nurses of SSISD would like to graciously offer our expertise to our students in this difficult time of need. We, school nurses, support student success by providing health care through assessment, interventions and follow-up. We want you to know that we miss our students dearly and hope that they are staying well while away from school. We want to remind everyone to take care of themselves by washing hands, covering coughs and sneezes with inner elbow or arm, staying home and practice social distancing. Please continue to administer daily medications as prescribed. We strongly urge you to call your doctor if you are sick with fever, cough and/or shortness of breath. If you have questions, concerns or comments for us nurses please complete the attached Nursing Form.
