Health Office

Gladstone's Health Office is staffed by our district nurse, Vivian Anderson, R.N., and Janine Courville Health Clerk.

If your child becomes ill at school, he/she will need to go to the health office. The health office staff will assess the student's condition and contact parents when necessary.

Please note that if your child is injured and requires medical attention or is hospitalized, he/she will need a medical release from a doctor that indicates the date the student may return to school. Please have the doctor list any restrictions or assistive devices needed. For example: "No P.E. for two weeks--must use crutches/sling/splint for 10 days."
