Welcome to the Norterra Canyon Health Center!
Nurse: Jennifer VanGysel, RN, BSN
Hello Pirate families! I am so happy to have been brought on board at Norterra Canyon as your school nurse. As part of the crew, it is my goal to help students stay as healthy as possible while they learn and grow as individuals and navigate the world around them. As a mom of 5 buccaneers of my own, 2 still at Boulder Creek High School, I am well aware of the challenges students face today and the team effort it takes to help them be successful. Know that when your student comes to the health office for assistance, I will do my best to treat within my scope of practice as an RN and also encourage them to persevere as students. As parents, you may have questions or concerns regarding your child's health. You are always welcome to call me and I will try to help in any way I can.

*Immunization clinics are still being offered and the vaccines are FREE! Check the bulletin board in the front office or call me for more information. Please email me any updated vaccine information so I can enter it into your students' record. Jennifer.VanGysel@dvusd.org
*Covid protocol for reentry into school has changed. Please note that if you are planning on having your student(s) return to school after a shortened quarantine of 5 days, they will be asked to wear a mask for the following 5 days. If you choose not to have them wear the mask, please keep them home for the full quarantine time. Children with asthma or other conditions that may make them susceptible to respiratory illnesses are at an increased risk for more severe responses to Covid. Keeping everyone as safe as possible is a team effort, so thank you for doing your part!
