Joanne Roberts, BSN, RN is the nurse at Marshwood High School. She is a graduate of The University of Vermont and is new to the world of school nursing. Since graduating from UVM, Mrs Roberts has been employed at Massachusetts General Hospital in a variety of acute care departments. In addition she was the Health Occupations instructor here at Marshwood for the previous 9 years. She is at Marshwood High School Monday - Friday from 7:20 AM to 2:50 PM.

Our goal at Marshwood High School is to keep our students as healthy as possible, supporting them in reaching their highest potential by minimizing absence due to illness. Communication about your child's health is vital to supporting him or her here in school. Please contact me with any health concerns or updates, or if your student has any special health needs. I can be reached by phone at 384-4500 or by email at joanne.roberts@rsu35.org. 

High School students lead busy lives, and much of the job of the school nurse at this level is to help students appreciate the importance of health and wellness, and recognize the influence lifestyle choices have on future health and well-being.
