NEMS Nurse’s Corner

Welcome to the health information site for Norton City Schools.  From this site, you will be able to access health forms, as well as health alerts.  As the school nurse, I strive to provide health care for our students and maintain up to date health records for them.  As parents/guardians, providing student health information is necessary and helpful.

Thank you for your assistance.  Check back for updates and alerts.
