Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year

It will be a challenging and different experience as we navigate through the Coronavirus pandemic, but we are prepared and working together to make this a safe and productive year for our students.

All the school nurses have been working with Catawba County Public Health in the Covid-19 Response since February, and are prepared to coordinate the response activities in each school. Please don't hesitate to contact your school nurse if you have any questions or concerns.

A little about Nurse June:

June J. Sisti, BSHM, RN, NCSN

A graduate from Gardner-Webb University, I have been a Registered Nurse since 1979, and a School Nurse working in the HPS school system since 2008. Sylva, NC is my home town, but with my husband, Charlie and our son, Matthew, I have lived and worked in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. We moved back to the Tar Heel State in 2004 from Charleston, SC where I also worked as a School Nurse. I love being the School Nurse at Jenkins! Call or email me if I can help you and your child(ren) with school health matters.
