To get this out of the school or there will be a lot of kids taken else where. I'm sorry I worry about my child!
Well if you were so concerned you should attend the school board meetings. For 2 years this was talked about without any opposition . Private school is an option. Also teachers are always looking for volunteers in the class room.

I knew nothing about this going on for 2 years! Neither did a lot of other parents. Also, for you to know that it was going on for two years and claim u knew everything and was friends with junie u didn't even know the time of it! I'm nit going to fight about this with u when my only problem is I worry about my babies. That would be stupid of me so who ever you are, thanks for ur time and arguing with me, but I have dishes to do and supper to make before my daughter gets home from school. U should not tell someone they r wrong for being concerned for their child. Or say that I am someone who drops my kid off at schools for them to run around unattended at ball games when my kids only go when I or their father r with them. You don't even know me if u did u would know what kind of mother I am, and I'm a great mother.

I am very thankful for the wellness clinic. Miss Junie is wonderful and can call in prescriptions and does without waiting hours and taking the child out of school. I'm sure the ladies who run things there are smart enough to keep an eye on the children. You sound very paranoid. I am wondering though crossbones if you have the answer, can a nurse practioner prescribe class three drugs? I would be concerned about the people who go to doctors just to get pain medication. Anyone can walk into a school at anytime and do damage. The clinic isn't a threat that way, that is rediculous.

No they can not. Anyone who has any sense at all knows there are no drugs at the clinic anyway. Are you people that affraid when you go into any other doctors office? Not like there is pain meds there! If that were my concern I sure wouldn't step foot in a drugstore! Where the pills actually are!!

If your concern is "strangers entering your childs school" because of the wellness center to get drugs think about the convicted child molesters we have around here! Anyone can and always could walk into the school long before the wellness center was open. School security should be standard procedure don't you think? There NO drugs in the wellness center!! Sure we have other doc offices around but not all can afford them. Maybe you should get on line and do some research on school based clinics and see how they operate and what the benafits of them are. These are nothing new and have helped thousands of students get healthcare that otherwise wouldn't have. Look it up. I did!

I love our wellness center. I have been having female issues and I finally went to find out what was wrong with me. I was diagnosed with acute camel toe disease. I was told it is not fatal just disgusting in my case.

The are very loving/caring to ALL the children( and adults are treated with the same amount of compassion) who enter their walls...... Sick or not..... Wellness visit or nurse visit! It's a wonderful clinic! Hats off to Miss Junie and Miss Mandy..... You girls are great!

I agree snickerdoodles...the wellness center has been wonderful for my family...it has allowed my youngins to get seen without having to be taken out of school..they get perfect attendance awards all 9 weeks of school and they have not missed a day of school in over 3 years...Miss Junie is the best and like someone said, adults get treated with such kindness as well...I love the wellness center and anyone who thinks of taking it out of the school, good luck, there are more that stand behind it than those who knock it...
