A Message From Our School Nurse
Welcome! R.S.U. 22 is strongly committed to student health and well-being. A child who is not healthy is unlikely to be alert, attentive, and ready to learn. A comprehensive school health program promotes student success and includes school health services, health education, and health promotion. I am the full time nurse at Hampden Academy and can be reached by the health office’s direct line or via email. Please contact me if you have any concerns about your student or questions about sports physicals, immunizations, illness, injuries or any other health issue.
“The school nurse is a registered professional nurse certified with the Maine Department of Education working in the school setting who strengthens and facilitates the educational process by improving and protecting the status of children. The major focus of school nursing services is the prevention of illness and disability, and the early detection and correction of health problems. The school nurse is uniquely qualified in preventative health, health assessment, and referral procedures.”
