  • Fall is finally here. With this time of year comes new viruses, rashes and bugs to be aware of. Certain symptoms in children may suggest the presence of a communicable disease. Excluding an ill student may decrease the spread of the illness to others in school. Please keep your student(s) home if they have ANY of these symptoms:  *See Health links for additional information

    -Has vomited 2 or more times in the previous 24 hours. Can return 24 hours after the last episode of vomiting.

  • Hi! My name is Jenny Whitney and I am the Licensed School Nurse here at Global Arts Plus- Lower. I have been a Registered Nurse and Public health Nurse for 18 years and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner for 12 of those years. I have practiced in hospitals, the Urgent Care setting and also in private practice as a Primary Care Provider. 

    I live in Apple Valley with my husband and two boys. In my free time I love to travel, watch movies, cook and bake, all kinds of creating, and spending time with my family and friends! 

    I'm thrilled to be starting my 2nd year as GAP-L school nurse. I am dedicated to protecting the health and safety of students and enhancing their education by addressing any health-related barriers to learning. 

  • Beth Corrigan is the Health Assistant at GAP-L and is the other half of our Health Team! She is able to provide first aid, administer medication, and is a big part of the day-to-day Health Office flow.
