At Nazareth Elementary we know that healthy kids are more successful in school. We are blessed to have two school nurses who work to support the physical, mental, emotional, and social health of Nazareth students:
Ms. Kathleen Knope
8:15 a.m.–2:45 p.m.
Sister Mary Jo Flynn, SSJ
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
9:15 a.m.–1:30 p.m.
Our nurses provide direct health care to students and they serve as the liaison between school personnel, family, community, and health care providers. They work in cooperation with Gail Burkland, RN, from Rochester City School District, for compliance with the New York State Health Department’s policies and procedures.
If your child is going to be absent, please call the school office by 9 a.m. If we do not hear from you, the nurse will call you to verify the absence. On the day your child returns, a written absence slip must be sent in. We are required by law to receive written excuses and to keep these on file for a year. Without a written excuse, a child must be marked illegally absent.
Please feel free to call the Nurses' office directly as needed:
