Evergreen Elementary Nurse's Office

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!  I am here at Evergreen as your partner in health and wellness.  

COVID-19 Closure
As of March 13, 2020 Perkiomen Valley School District Buildings have been closed due to the Novel Corona Virus (also called COVID-19). Although the school building is closed, I continue to be available via email. I have daily office hours from 8:30 to 9:30 when I am available via email. If you need to speak to me, please send me an email and we can coordinate a time which I can call you. I continue to check my email throughout the day as well, so if you need me outside of the set office hours, please send me an email and I will respond as soon as I am able to.

School closures are in effect to help break the chain of disease. Please practice social distancing while we are not together in our school buildings: 
  • Stay home as much as you can
  • Avoid public spaces
  • Keep at least 6 feet between you and others if you must go out
  • Do not attend or host large gatherings
  • Avoid using mass transit
If you are looking for general information regarding COVID-19, there are links below with information from the CDC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. 

Immunization Information
Please take a moment to review the school vaccination requirements. If you have your child scheduled for their annual check-up, please be sure to talk to your doctor about what's needed for the upcoming school year. Click the link below for the immunization requirements by grade level: 
Please be sure to provide the nurse's office with a complete list of your child's required vaccinations.

A new medication order from your physician is required at the start of each school year. Parents are welcome to come to school and medicate their child as necessary.
