     If you are looking to spread a little kindness and love, check out the website Love for the Elderly. They are a non-profit that works to fight the social isolation many elders experience when living in long-term care facilities. Most of these facilities are sheltering in place and not allowing any visitors in order to protect their residents. Love for the Elderly needs our help now more than ever. Please support this wonderful organzation by writing and mailing an uplifting letter to an elderly stranger.

    Hello!

    This 2019-2020 school year is my 8th year at West Tisbury School.  I am a registered nurse with experience in school and community health, and it is my job to take care of all students during the school day. Healthy kids learn more!  

    My school nurse mission is to provide healthcare services to support every student's academic success, as well as any staff member.  The WT School's comprehensive health program's purpose is to encourage the best possible health outcome for each student and to teach students to make responsible decisions regarding their own health as they get older. 

    The West Tisbury School's comprehensive school health program includes: yearly screenings (vision, hearing, posture, BMI, and SBIRT), procedures to prevent the spread of communicable diseases, emergency care, wellness procedures for students with special health care needs, absentee monitoring, help with nutritional challenges, etc.  

    With nursing assessment and appropriate intervention, more students are able to stay in school. Our goal is to identify health related barriers to learning, and collaborate with teachers and pediatrians to accomodate students with healthcare needs. 

    Please take the time to review my webpage, and familiarize yourself with our wellness policies and support services, as well as the required student information and forms.

    It is my pleasure and a privelege to be part of the West Tisbury School community.   I look forward to being a part of your child's school experience.  Please stay in touch and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

    Sincerely,

     Kristine Cammorata, RN BSN NCSN
