A Letter From Nurse Whiting
Dear PRS Community,
It is with mixed emotions that I inform you I will be retiring as the school nurse at
Plymouth River School. My last day will be October 31, 2022.
I have loved being the school nurse for the PRS community. Most of all, I have enjoyed caring for your children and will miss them a great deal. Every day was a new day filled with children’s laughter, tears, stories, ailments and injuries.
Thank you for your support throughout these years.
Deborah Whiting, RN
Letter from Principal Lamothe
Hello PRS Wizards,
What a fabulous first week we had! Collaboration between staff getting their classrooms together, teaching routines and welcoming students into their classrooms along side you sending your children to school with smiles and positive attitudes worked in great harmony. You all have been fantastic while together as a PRS community we are still learning, growing, and adjusting to being back in school.
