Procedures for Communicating Your Child's Health Conditions/Illnesses


We always appreciate communication about your child's health conditions and illnesses. Please ensure that you are directing any questions, concerns, or notifications of illness to our school nurse, Laura Smith, at 410-313-1510, or  laura_smith1@hcpss and not only to your student's teachers. Our nurse is the gatekeeper for health and illness protocol and will be able to help you navigate your specific situation.

Thank you!
