School Nurse: Jessica Hipp, RN
We have a full-time registered nurse at Jones Valley Elementary School. The nurse sees students in her office from 8:30am-2:00pm. The nurse's office is closed for lunch from 12:30-1:00 except for emergencies and students with mandated needs.
The School Health Services Program promotes the health of all students, affording them an opportunity to better participate in learning and receive the maximum benefit from their instructional program. Barriers to learning that can accompany a variety of chronic and acute health conditions must be identified and minimized for students to participate and learn to their maximum potential.
The Health Services program is designed to focus on the health status of students; to educate and counsel students, teachers, and parents related to health issues; to help prevent and control communicable disease; to provide emergency care for injury and/or sudden illness; to promote optimum conditions in school buildings; to promote health education as an integral part of the curriculum.
Parents are encouraged to contact the school nurse during school hours to discuss student health conditions or concerns. The nurse can be reached by telephone at 256-428-7220 Opt 1 or email at: Jessica.email@example.com .
