WELCOME TO THE RIS HEALTH OFFICE PAGE

THERE ARE 2 REGISTERED NURSES WHO ARE CERTIFIED IN SCHOOL NURSING AND HEALTH EDUCATION HERE AT ROOSEVELT! WE ALTERNATE MARKING PERIODS BETWEEN THE HEALTH OFFICE AND THE HEALTH CLASSROOM SETTING.
 
Sharon Dorry RN, BSN, CSN
I've been a Registered Nurse for over 30 years.  I graduated with a BSN from Rutgers University and continued on to complete my School Nurse/Health Education Degree at Kean University. My husband and I have raised our 3 daughters in Westfield. We have 2 dogs named Lucy and Winnie. My Nursing background is mostly in Critical Care, and I have been working here at Roosevelt for 14 years!
 
Christine DeSousa RN, BSN, CSN
I've been a Registered Nurse for 19 years. After working in Critical Care for several years, I decided to continue my education and become a School Nurse/ Health Educator.  I have four children that keep me busy when outside of Roosevelt.  I have been working here now for 14 great years! 
What has been the #1 request of students this year, when they come to visit the Nurse?????
 
"Can I have some water??? I forgot my water bottle!" 
 
Please, please, please send a refillable water bottle in with your student daily to stay hydrated and healthy:) 
 
We thank you in advance, as only the "filtered water stations for refillable bottles" are available for consumption throughout the school day!
 
Below is a short article that highlights the need for all of our kids to stay hydrated!! Check it out...
