Ronit Gourarie, RN
My name is Ronit Gourarie. As the School Nurse at Northshore Middle School, I work to minimize the impact of student health issues on learning, by helping students manage their health issues. My goals are threefold: to help keep our students safe and healthy, to manage health problems as they arise, and to be a health resource for Northshore families.
Please keep me informed of any health concerns or changes in your child's health, including new or resolved medical or mental health diagnosis, medication changes and immunization updates. Updating the Health Registration form is an excellent way to do this. Also, be sure that your emergency contact information is up to date and that your contact persons are available.
Feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions you might have.
The State of Washington schedules students in grades Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th for routine vision and hearing screening.
Please notify the nurse if you wish to excuse your child from the screening.
Volunteers are needed to help with vision and hearing screening.
Please notify the nurse if you would like to volunteer.
No prior experience necessary.
Substitute Nurses Needed:
Are you a Registered Nurse who might be interested in exploring the rewards of school based nursing, supplementing work hours or simply maintaining nursing licensure credentials? We would love to discuss available opportunities as a substitute school nurse with the Northshore School District -- this is a great way to transition into community nursing with K-12 school age children. Contact Rebecca Cavanaugh, Health and Nursing Supervisor, Northshore School District: 425.408.7728 or firstname.lastname@example.org
