An independent school in Middletown, DE for students in Preschool through Grade 8

Health & Wellness

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! 

I wanted to formally introduce myself to the community and share some information related to the Health Office.  I am joining St. Anne's Episcopal School after working the last 14 years at Tower Hill School in Wilmington.  Throughout my years there, I held several roles including: Certified Athletic Trainer, Summer Camp Health Coordinator, Educator, and substitute for the School Nurse.  I am extremely passionate about student health and wellness and have been grateful for my experiences working with children in a Pre-K-12 secondary school setting.  As a new face on campus, I am excited to meet each and every one of you and ensure that our children's health and safety is the top priority as we start another school year amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Health and wellness are important matters in St. Anne’s Lower and Middle School programs.  We strongly believe in the on-going connection between body and mind. Our goal is to teach our students wholesome habits that will foster a healthy lifestyle. We are a nut-aware school.  Nut aware means you are being asked by the school to bring in peanut/nut alternatives for individual student lunches and snacks out of consideration to our children with severe , life threatening allergies.  Food brought in cannot have any peanut or nut ingredients, including peanut/nut oils or peanut/nut flour.

These are modeled in all grades through outdoor recess, Physical Education, interscholastic sports (grades 6-8),  daily devotions, healthy meals, and rest time for our youngest students. Middle School students attend a health class that covers topics including nutrition, fitness, healthy attitudes and relationships in an age-appropriate curriculum one trimester each year.

Health Services

Beyond basic first aid and managing medications for students, our team asks you to partner with them to keep us informed of your student’s health records and needs.

Each year you will be asked to submit health forms that can be downloaded from the right side of this page. Once completed, they should  be returned to our Health Services Office where medical records are stored.
