Nurse’s Notes


Welcome to the St. Peter’s School Nurse’s Web Page

…Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” And he laid his hands on them… Matthew 19: 14,15

I am grateful and honored for the privilege to serve as St. Peter’s school nurse in the footsteps of our retired school nurse, Mrs. Jennifer Spires.  Born and raised in Mansfield, I grew up in the St. Peter’s parish community.

Receiving the Holy Sacraments of Baptism through Confirmation has provided me with a solid foundation for faith formation to support me along my life journey.

It is an honor for me to have this chance to give back to the very community that has inspired and impacted my life.  I am hopeful the same will be true for the life journey of each of my three children also attending St. Peter’s School.

Dear Parents:

Giving any medication, prescription or over-the-counter at school without the order of a physician is prohibited by law.  Students may not have medication in their possession, in backpacks, pockets, desks or lockers.  If they need to carry life saving medication such as an inhaler or Epi-Pen, there is a form that must be completed by the parents and signed by the physician.  Any medication to be given in school must be in the original container and must be accompanied by a signed order from a physician.  Please ask at the office for a form if your child needs any medication at school.

Thank you,

Diane Stewart, RN, BS
