Student wellness and healthy lifestyle choices are linked to academic success. Pleasant View School introduced a valuable addition to the school community, Sister Attiya Haque, the school nurse.
The Panther's Post recently talked to Ms. Haque to learn about her.
Q: Give us an introduction. Tell us a little about yourself.
A: “I am originally from Pakistan, but I was born in the States. I left the United States when I was 6 years old. I was brought up in Saudi Arabia. I did medical school in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Finally, in 2004, I moved back to the USA. I have 3 girls, Alhamdulillah. I started volunteering at PVS when my daughter began attending the school!”
Q: What times and how often are you here?
A: “I come to campus on Wednesdays and spend the full day here. On some weeks, I come on Tuesdays as well.”
Q: What does a typical day look like as a school nurse?
A: “My typical day as the school nurse looks like going through our medicine inventory, computing, and then accompanying the kids when they play outside. A usual day involves two to three kids falling on the playground, allergy issues, body aches, pink eye, or taking care of cold symptoms.”
PVS is so grateful to have Ms. Haque join our community!
