Keep One Another Healthy
You can notify the school nurse by calling the school or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be patient if you leave her a message or send an email. She will get to you as quickly as possible. Nurse Martin is an amazing nurse and we are so blessed to have her at our school.
Students are responsible for completing assignments when they are absent for any reason. Please connect with your child's teachers (or have your students email them) if they will be out for several days.
Test to Stay
Students must be issued a ticket by the school nurse in order to test at any Test to Stay site.
North Carolina STEM SCHOOL DESIGNATION
Additionally, we would like to make connections with parents who represent many careers. We are asking that our parents please complete the Google Form to help us build our Stanley STEM Network.
Thank you to those who have already completed the form. If you use STEM skills in anyway in your profession, we need you in one of many ways!
