School Nurses Plan for a Healthy School Year!
Kelly Landwehr (R), our lead school nurse and President of the VT School Nurse Assn, was on Vermont Public’s Vermont Edition today talking about how to keep our kids healthy as we head back to school. Earlier this month, she and nurse Haysal Jones (L) prepared for the new school year by attending the Vermont State School Nurses Association and University of Vermont Children’s Hospital Working Together Conference in Colchester on August 22nd where they learned about updates and best practices in school health and pediatric care.
What are Nurse Kelly's top suggestions to keep students healthy?
- Communicate any health concerns with your school nurse.
- Help your kids prevent illness with good rest, nutrition, and exercise.
- Remind them to WASH their HANDS!
