Welcome to my website! I have my Master's Degree in Nursing, with almost 40 years of various professional nursing experiences. This is my 16th year in the Belleville School District's Nursing Department. It is my wish that this school year will be a healthy one for you, your family, and our school. It is important that your children experience success in school. Being prepared for school, along with feeling healthy and well rested will help your children achieve academic and social success.
Let's work together as a team, keeping me informed of all illnesses, injuries, physical exams eye exams, immunizations, routine medications, allergies, etc, throughout the year. By providing this information to me, it also keeps your children's health records up to date.
For the best interests of all children, and in order to prevent the spread of communicable illnesses, your children should be kept home if they show any of the following symptoms: sore throat, running nose, skin eruptions, excessive fatigue, temperature in past 24 hours, vomiting in the past 24 hours, enlarged glands, toothache, headache, pain, chills or earaches. Please always feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
We are quickly approaching the flu season. Please consider getting the flu vaccine for everyone in your household, over the age of 6 months. Despite a popular myth, you can NOT get the flu from the flu vaccine, however, by not getting the vaccine, you can become very sick from the flu and possibly spread the flu to your family, friends and coworkers. Please consult your health care provider or review information at www.flu.gov.
The Belleville Health Department offers free flu shots, by appointments, for all Belleville residents. To schedule an appointment, the Health Department can be reached at 973-450-3390.
