Academic Success Through Health


"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students.  To that end, school nurse
s facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services;
and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management,
self-advocacy and learning."
Adopted by the National Association of School Nurses, June 1999


Dear Parents and Students:  

Welcome to Spring at GMUHS and I hope your son/daughter is having a great year of academic success through health.   This website has tabs at the top where you can choose a topic for health in
formation, receive updates
regarding present health issues, and up-to-date immunization information.

If you have questions, please feel free to call me or your healthcare provider, as I work closely with some of them and the Vermont Department of Health as well.  I can be reached by contacting the Green Mountain Health Office @ (802)875-4154 or you may e-mail me at christine.simmons@trsu.org.  I hope your son/daughter has a great rest of his or her school year at Green Mountain Union High School.
