School Nurse

Welcome to all students, parents and guardians. As your school nurse I am responsible for monitoring your child’s health and safety in the school setting throughout the year.  With your help, the school health program can enhance and maintain the highest level of health for each student and provide a rewarding school experience. Contact me with school health questions and concerns.

I am happy to be your school nurse at Sunderland Elementary School. 

I know first hand the dread of getting a call during the work day from a school nurse!  I can relate to the complexities of managing work-life-balance.

Please remember to  call my office to report that your child will be absent because of an illness or injury. Together we can make a plan for your child’s return to school.  


I am originally from rural Kentucky but the beautiful Pioneer Valley has been my home for over 30 years. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and 

a Bachelors of Science in Nursing at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Medications in School

Over-the-counter, non-prescription medications such as medicated cough drops, cough syrup, decongestants etc. require a written order from your child's doctor. All OTC's must be kept in the nurse's office, not in the classroom.

Prescription medication taken for 10 days or less such as antibiotics do not require a doctor's order, but must be sent to school in the original pharmacy labeled container. Prescription medication sent to school in an envelope or plastic bag will not be given.

Long-term or emergency prescription medication such as inhalers, epi-pens and Psychotropic medication require a written doctor's order and must be sent in the original pharmacy labeled container.

These Department of Public Health regulations are in place to keep you child safe. Your cooperation in the safe dispensing of medication is greatly appreciated!
