“I think cutting nurse availability is a pretty short-sighted idea that unnecessarily puts kids’ health at risk”

“Dear PoPville,

I just saw a note on my kid’s school listserve that the Health Committee is planning a vote that would reduce the required hours for an on site nurse from 40 hours to 20 hours. My experience with my two insane balls of energy is that I never know when they are going to need a school nurse’s help. I think cutting nurse availability is a pretty short-sighted idea that unnecessarily puts kids’ health at risk. Folks that want to register their concerns could take it up with CM Grosso and CM Todd — both of whom sit on the Health Committee. Thanks for getting the word out.
