Important Update from Nurse Rosenbaum

Hello Parents of JRMS,

My Name is Cathy Rosenbaum. I am the Registered Nurse here at John Rolfe Middle School. I am here to help our students feel their best so they can learn. Throughout the middle school years I hope to establish a relationship with you and your child. I make every effort to keep you informed of injuries and complaints as needed while supporting your student’s class attendance and success. Whenever possible, I like to see your student return to the classroom but fully understand the moments when it is best to go home or seek medical care. I truly respect your role as a parent and will do my best to work with you to do the right thing. Never hesitate to call me.    

Learning is a challenge when teens are hungry, sick, tired, or stressed, but going home is not always the answer. When students are having a bad day, encourage them to visit the clinic so we can find solutions. There are many caring adults at John Rolfe who are capable of helping your child through a situation, so encourage them to seek that help. 

I know throughout the year there will be many questions with regards to the clinic and medications, forms, and immunizations. If there is ever anything I can help you with please don’t hesitate to contact me. I have enclosed several links to what you, as a parent, might possibly need. 

  • Health History forms:

  • Immunization information please read:

Please, for the students returning, do your daily health checks on your child prior to sending them to school. Make sure they are comfortable with wearing a 2 ply mask while here in the school building. Gators, bandanas or masks with exhalation valves are not acceptable. Also,  understand that social distancing will be required. 

Please see below for HCPS covid 19 health plan:

Also, this is required before students return to the building. Please fill out both pages. Page 2 is for you to keep at home, page 1 should return with the student and be turned in to the clinic.

Again please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, 

Stay safe, distance yourself, wash your hands, wear your mask………
