The Health Room @ WMS
Recognizing that healthy students learn better, the School District has a licensed nurse in each school. The purpose of school nursing is to enhance the educational process by the modification or removal of health-related barriers to learning and by promotion of an optimal level of wellness. School nurses accomplish these activities in partnership with students, parents, school staff and the Greenville Medical Community.
School Nurse: Roberta Shaw, RN
Office Hours : 8:15 a.m - 3:15 p.m.
Contact Information: Phone 355-8507 or Fax 355-9888
Student Emergency Information Form
On the first day of school your child will be given an Emergency Information sheet to be completed by a parent. This is very important. Please print all information clearly. This will be the only way we have to reach you in case of an emergency at school. If, at any time, ANY of this information should change, please notify your school nurse immediately.
If your child comes to the Health Room and needs to go home, we must contact a parent or legal guardian. We cannot send a student home with anyone until a parent has been notified. This is why it is so very important that we have current information about how to contact you at all times. If your child has an emergency situation or needs immediate care that cannot be provided at school, those contacts you list on the Health Card will be called IF we cannot reach a parent first. Please understand that this is for your child's protection.
