Nurse Julie's Virtual Health Office

Hello MJP Scholars, Families, and Staff!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I hope you all stayed healthy and safe over the summer. I am looking forward to seeing some of you in-person soon. I hope this site can serve as a place for those seeking health-related information, those with health-related questions, and those that would like to talk.


Stay healthy. Stay safe. Stay kind.
