My name is Myra Golomb and I am the Elementary Certified School Nurse for BASD and St. Columba. I am usually in each building at least once every week. Since I cannot be in each school all the time, your child's health needs are also met by health room assistants. Health room assistants are Tara Rickert, LPN (WWE), Deb Gelnett, LPN (Memorial), Gloria Davis (Beaver), and Gay Moran (St. Columba). My email address is: email@example.com.
Each year, health screenings are completed with each student which include height, weight, BMI (body mass index), and vision. Students in grades K-3 and 7 also receive hearing screenings. You will be notified of the results. All seventh grade students will be checked for scoliosis during the school year.
If your child is in grade K, 3, or 7 this year, we will need a report from your dentist for your child's health record. Grade K, and 6 and all new students need a physical exam on file. If your child needs either, you have/will receive a reminder notice. Forms for these exams are available on the district web site or the reports may be handed in on whatever form your health care provider uses. Mobile Dentist is available once or twice a year and their permission forms are sent home with each student (grades K-8) prior to their visits.
Anytime your child receives immunizations, please let us know so we can update your child's record. If you have any medical concerns for your child, please do not hesitate to call! I can be reached most often at Memorial (570-784-6135). Email is perhaps the easiest way to reach me for non-emergent matters. I do check my email at least daily.
In addition to being a Certified School Nurse, I am “Mom” to three adult children: sons Dagaen and Dylan and daughter Kayti.
My husband and I were married on the beach at Cape May, and I return to the beach every year. There is something amazing powerful, yet very calming, about the ocean.
Lastly, and perhaps what I am most well known for at Memorial, it has been said that I make the best PNB fudge.
