**Read the proclamation here: School Nurse Proclamation**

Dear School Nurses,

It is my honor to wish you all a Happy National School Nurse Day!  Attached is my proclamation for you, the workforce that has the power to change the future of our nation and the world.  School nurses touch the lives of children in every state, public, private, charter, independent, and parochial school.  We support parents, advocate for equity, and save lives everyday.  The nation and world is a better place because of the knowledge and expertise we bring to the education community. 

Today, and everyday, I recognize the importance of your work and understand the challenges you face. Thank you for your dedication. Thank you for what you do everyday to make students healthy, safe and ready to learn!
