News From The School Nurse

Our school partners with Healthy Learners, a non-profit organization that helps children without health insurance or limited health insurance coverage to get the health care they need. They provide assistance with eye exams and glasses, hearing evaluations, dental care, doctor's visits, prescription medications, counseling service and/or other health needs. Healthy Learners can even provide transportation for your child from school to their appointment if you so choose. There is no charge to the child or family for Healthy Learners services.

If your child has a health need and you would like to know if you qualify for Healthy Learner’s services, please contact our school nurse, Pam McDill, RN at 843-237-0106.
