Social Supports for Our Community
Dear Bridge Valley Parents,
As your child’s Certified School Nurse I have the privilege and unique perspective of observing your children grow and change in the seven years they are at Bridge Valley. One of my responsibilities is calling upon you the parents when your children are ill, injured or in distress. No parent likes the call from the school nurse, “your child is ill, and needs to go home.” I understand it can be challenging to raise children today with the stressors of multiple jobs, demands outside and inside the home.
I have observed that parents, children, and our school community do best when families have developed a social and emotional support outside of the immediate relatives. Some of you have both sets of parents close by, cousins, siblings and many friends you can turn to in times of need. But for other families who may be from another state or nation, the luxury of such support does not exist.
Although it is a very difficult leap to make, I encourage you to develop a support system to help you in times of need. It is not a weakness but strength. The community, agency or person you ask to help may just think it’s a privilege, not a burden.
For resources you may find helpful please click here. Please know I too am your resource and feel privileged when called upon for advice and support.
We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone…and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads from one another that creates something.” ~Sandra Day O’Connor.

Why do you keep on slamming me
Your shoves are like some stinging bees
What did I ever do to you
Your making me want to hate you too
I know all your secrets
I could tell them real quick
You better back off
Or I’ll give you a kick
Stop twisting my knob
And being a snob
You wish you had never done that
Or I’ll sneak in a rat
Now that you know what I can do
You know that doors have feelings too
