  •  Goals of Middletown School Nurses:

    *Reducing health-related barriers to   learning and health-related absenteeism, thus improving student   achievement.

    *Promote the health, safety, and wellness of all students and staff in our schools

    *Promote a positive, collaborative relationship with students, families, colleagues, and the community

    *Promote best practices in school health services through professional development and resources.

    Message: There is a positive correlation between a child's health and their academic potential. All children need to receive support at school for health conditions that may impact their safety, well-being, and capacity for learning. Our health services teams are here to help your child. If you have any questions or concerns about your child's health, please contact Nurse Practitioner Barbara Kura at (845)326-1259 or your school nurse.
