Message from Nurse Nolla


Hello Woodland Hills High Families!

This is Nurse Nolla, your friendly neighborhood school nurse. Just touching base to say I truly get it - from the mysterious "my tummy hurts" that magically heals after school, to the heart-dropping rush to the hospital when something's really up. Having six of my own and a journey through the thick and thin of pediatric health, I've seen it all. And now, with a laugh, I can say school law and I are pretty tight buddies.

Now, onto the real reason I'm reaching out. I need a tiny bit of help to keep our awesome kids safe and sound right here at school. Here's how you can be my superhero:

  1. Update those emergency cards - your contact info, three people who can scoop up your kiddo if needed, and the lowdown on any medical history or meds and the doses. I also need their allergies. This is very important.

You can also update your emergency contact information using the Forms system in the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Click on Update Contacts.

  1. Donate drinks if you can - Water or Gatorade would be stellar! Our nurse budget's a bit tight, and staying hydrated is key for our young scholars. Just drop them off labeled 'For Nurse Nolla'.

Lastly, let me just say, your kids are amazing. They may give you the runaround at home, but in my office, they're all 'please', 'thank you', and respect. I'm here cheering them on to be their best, think critically, and step into the world with confidence. They truly make my heart smile.

Drop by, ask them about me, and thank you for letting me be a part of their journey. They make every day brighter!

Mandated Department of Health Vision Screening in February 2024

Vision to Learn will be at the High School on February 27 and February 28 to conduct vision tests for all high school students. If your child does not pass the screening, they will be referred to the Vision To Learn mobile clinic to receive a routine eye exam from an independent licensed optometrist. If needed, your child may also be prescribed glasses. The optometrist will also notify you if your student needs follow-up eye care. Eye exams do not involve eye drops or dilation.

Vision To Learn follows CDC, state and federal regulations including staff daily health screenings, the use of Personal Protective Equipment for staff and students, and thorough disinfection between patients. Vision To Learn is committed to following best practices to prioritize the safety of our students.
