A Welcome From Nurse Hines
Hello Cougar families, I’m your new school RN, Vonnie Hines! Students who self-carry need to see me next week if they have not already. Did you know students have to keep the medication order, parent contact information and the self-carry authorization with them at all times?! Besides assuring good self-care and safety, this is in preparation for all of the end of year field trips.

About the artist: Shane is a self taught artist that paints on canvas and on walls. His work varies in styles and mediums depending on the project or application. Oil, acrylic, and spray paint are his most common materials. From free hand techniques to making stencils on site there really isn’t much Shane won’t use to create an image.
