Mrs. ZoltkoNurse: Diana Zoltko, MSN, RN, NCSN, SNIII :
 
Diana Zoltko (otherwise known as Mrs. Z) has joined Milford High School as our new school nurse. Diana is a resident of Milford and has been a registered nurse for many years. She worked in the Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative School District for 10 years as their school nurse. She is also a nursing instructor, and has taught undergraduate and graduate nursing courses at Rivier University and the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
Nurse aide: Sandy Lafleur, RA
 
Sandy Lafleur, RA, has worked at MHS for 25 years! She is also the faculty advisor for the Earth Club, and teaches Appalachian dulcimer out of her home in Wilton and at music festivals all over New England and New York. For the past ten years, she has called contra dances locally and around New England. Before coming to MHS, she drove a bus for the Amherst School District for nine years, and worked as a floral designer and extension agent for the Green Thumb Program of Southern NH Services. Sandy holds an Associate’s Degree in Applied Plant Science from the Thompson School at UNH, and is an American Heart Association certified CPR/AED Instructor. Her hope for the students at Milford High School is that they come to understand the strong connection between what they do and how they feel, and that they also understand that health issues are not always solved with a medication. Good nutrition and exercise, sufficient and restful sleep, healthy relationships, and finding one’s joy are key to good health both during the teenage years and on to adulthood. She believes in the power of shared experiences shaped by participants, particularly in music.
Definition of School Nursing
School nursing, a specialized practice of nursing, protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.
