Your student’s health is important at The Discovery School!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns! I value each child as a unique individual and my #1 goal is your child's health and well-being here at The Discovery School. 

CLINIC HOURS 7:45-2:45

Students are able to access the clinic during their school day by requesting a clinic form from their teacher if they are ill or injured. If your child was seen during their school day, a copy of the clinic referral slip will be in their book bag giving details of their visit. It is up to each student to make sure the clinic pass is put into their book bag.
