Hi! I'm Nurse Michelle. I am the School Nurse. I am contracted through Fargo Cass Public Health and I work at Central Cass Public School Monday through Thursday and every other Friday. I am here to help keep our kids, teachers, and staff happy and healthy. As part of my job, I go into many classrooms throughout the year to teach lessons to help keep kids safe, informed, and healthy. I also see many students throughout the day in my office with everything from minor injuries, checking temperatures, to giving medications when needed, and more extreme issues as they arise. My office door is always open and my phone is always there to answer questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to working with you and keeping our school as healthy as possible!

Please have your students receive these before the start of the school year. Also, remember to bring in proof of the immunizations to the school.
Please be sure to fill out the yearly health information form for your child. If your child needs an emergency careplan or to take medication during the school day, these forms are available at my office or at the Drs office. These forms need to filled out, signed by the physician and parent/guardian. Please stop in or call if you have any questions. Thanks, Nurse Michelle
