Welcome to the Bandelier Health Office!

Katherine Jackson, School Nurse, and Alec Loeser, Health Assistant, here to welcome you all to a new and unique school year!

Our mission is to create a safe and healthy environment for children to learn and grow.

The Health Office will join with teachers, counselors, and staff in providing holistic services that consider the whole child and their family and/or community in our delivery of care. We provide screenings (visual, hearing, dental, etc), case management of chronic illnesses, immunization review, care of acute illnesses, and a safe and comforting place to rest when feeling ill to name a few of our services. We also have lots of Band-Aids, ice packs, and Nurse Crackers!!

The Nurse/Health Office is in the middle of the main hall across from the office and we will be present during school hours (9am to 3:10pm) each day. Occasionally the RN or HA will need to be out for staff meetings or professional development meetings in which case we will have arranged coverage; and, will be a phone call away.

Our health office is not a replacement for your usual provider (MD, NP, PA) or emergency services. If this is a medical crisis or emergency please call your provider or 911!
