As a part of the mission of LMS to give each student every opportunity to make the most of themselves, my goal as school nurse is to promote good health among students and staff and to assist students, staff and parents in maintaining optimum health for academic success.

Please feel free to call me if you ever have any questions or concerns about your child's health. The health room is open all school days, 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM. Please be sure to notify the school as soon as possible if you have a new phone number, so that we can reach you in case of emergency. You, or someone designated by you, will need to be available to pick up your student in case of emergency or illness that are thought to be contagious.
