Healthy, Safe and Ready to Learn

Comstock Park in partnership with Spectrum Health Healthier Communities, employs a full time Registered Nurse, Heather Norman, RN, BSN. Mrs. Norman provides health services for all of our district buildings.

Hello I am Heather Norman. This is my third year in the district. I love being part of the CP family!

A little about my role: I am the nurse of the entire district. This means that I jump around between buildings as needed for student emergencies. I help coordinate with physicians for medical needs, and make sure kids stay staff in schools by training people in each building. I help with medical 504s and IEPs, Student Assistance teams, the District Wellness Committee, and so much more!

I am here to partner with you to keep your kiddos in school, safe and healthy!

Please contact me anytime by phone or email (616)-254-5030 or email at hnorman@cppschools.com

Sincerely, 

Nurse Heather

 

Latest Updates:

Fish and Nut Free District

The entire district is now “Nut and Fish Free”. We have many students with severe allergies throughout the district, and want to ensure that we are providing the safest school experience for all students! So, we ask that you please refrain from sending any lunches or snacks with nuts such as peanuts or almonds, peanut butter, etc. as well as any fish. If those are some of your child’s favorite foods, I am happy to help you find some tasty alternatives!

 

I have created a document attached HERE titled Peanut, Nut, and Fish Alternatives with some great options for those picky eaters and students that love PB& J's.

 

Thank you so much for your help, understanding, and caring for our kiddos!
