Health Services - Gail Ellis, RN, BSN, NCSN, School Nurse

Hello and welcome to the school nurse page.  My name is Gail Ellis and I am the school nurse for East McDowell Middle School.   I have worked as a registered nurse since 1988 after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and have been a school nurse since 1999.  I received national certification as a school nurse in 2006.  School nursing is as rewarding as it is challenging and I feel blessed to be a part of this school community.
My office hours are 7:30 am-3:30 am.  I can be reached at gail.ellis@mcdowell.k12.nc.us or at 652-7711.  Our fax number at East Middle is 652-1469.  If you would like to come in for a meeting, I encourage you to call or email to set up an appointment or call before you come to ensure I am on campus.
Healthy children learn better.  Attendance is very important for your child's academic success.  My goal is to help your child stay in school when at all possible, to send them home or suggest follow up with your health care provider when indicated, and to support any needs or modifications they may need at school
