Welcome to Spencer-Owen Community Schools Health Services

My goal is to keep kids at school feeling healthy and happy, but that isn’t always possible. Illness, injuries, and life happen, therefore, we try to stock basic health needs at each school for injury care, over-the-counter medications (only used with parent permission), emergency equipment, and basic pantry food items. This allows us to assist students with basic needs that come up so they are more likely to be able to stay at school and continue to learn, achieve and succeed. Communication with parents/guardians is a large part of our job. We want to keep you updated as things happen at school, and also want to know when something is going on with your child that will affect him or her at school. If your child has a chronic condition, it is helpful for us to know this. We can better care for your child if we know the circumstances. It is also helpful to let us know when your child has a change in health: illness, development of a chronic condition, and even change in circumstances at home that can cause stress. We look forward to working with you to make your child’s year a great one.

My family and I moved to Spencer in 2005, when my husband was hired as the instructor for Air Force Junior ROTC at Owen Valley HIgh School.  A year later in 2006, I was hired as the school corporation here at SOCS.  I left this job in 2012 to be home with my daughter who was diagnosed with a serious illness.  I returned to SOCS in September 2015, to again serve as Corporation Nurse.  I am very excited to be back and enjoy working closely with staff and parents to promote good health for an optimal learning environment.  Please contact me by phone or email with any questions or concerns.  Because I do travel to all 6 buildings, you can call me at my "home office" at Owen Valley Middle School where staff can give you my location and phone number. They can also take a message and contact me to call you back.  Please communicate if the need is urgent or not.  This allows staff to know the urgency and can contact me right away, if needed.
