My name is Anne Slaboden and I am pleased to be the School Nurse for Tri-Valley Schools. I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Ohio Wesleyan Riverside School of Nursing.I have been a nurse for 27 years and have worked in all areas of nursing, requiring different skills. I became the nurse for Tri-Valley schools in November 2009. The most important job of a school nurse is to assist students in attaining and maintaining their optimum level of health so that they can grow physically, emotionally and academically. Nurses in schools work in conjunction with parents who have the primary responsibility for the health of their children.
My goals are threefold, to keep our students safe and healthy, to manage health problems as they arise, and to be a resource and advocate for families in our community. To help me achieve these goals please keep me updated of any changes regarding your child's health and be sure to inform the office staff if there are changes in your emergency contact information.
A list of screenings, forms and other health information provided for your child are located on the right. I hope the information is helpful.
