This week we join the nation in celebrating Nurses! We are so very thankful for their commitment to our 1800+ students and greatly appreciate all that they do! So far this year our three Nurses in our nurses office have experienced 16,000 student encounters averaging 100 students per day. In addition to seeing students for unexpected ailments they also distribute medications daily. They coordinate the process of documenting the height and weight of our 10 th grade students. They perform back checks on our 9 th grade students and will coordinate the vision and hearing tests of our 10 th grade students. They are the first called for a medical emergency and move throughout the building at a moment’s notice. They are professional, dedicated and we are so very grateful they have chosen to be part of Hillie Nation.
