Jones Family’s 2001 Gift for Campus Health Center Proves Critical to 学生健康, COVID缓解

作者:David Klein b| 回到目录

 


有时候,最好的礼物是那些不断给予的. 在Seby B的案例中. 琼斯健康中心-作为四年计划的一部分, $12.500万大胆行动 — the gift that made the facility possible 20 years ago has helped make Ravenscroft’s return to on-campus instruction possible today.

“The Jones Health Center is unique among facilities at many of our peer schools,慈善学院副院长菲尔·希金森说. “这在今年变得至关重要.”

这份礼物源于一个家庭与学校之间的纽带. 这栋建筑的名字, Seby琼斯, 你有六个孙子在拉文斯克罗夫特上学吗, 和家人都是拉文斯克罗夫特倡议的热心支持者. 与此同时, they provided a gift to name the theater in the 美术 Center after Jones’ wife, 克里斯蒂娜.

“我祖父的热情之一是为所有学生提供优质教育. Health 和 wellness of the 学生 went h和-in-h和 with his beliefs,” 说 克里斯蒂·琼斯,90年. “I know my gr和father would be very proud of the critical role the Jones Health Center plays in the day-to-day life of all 学生 today.”

一排拖车

十大靠谱网赌北罗利校区成立之初, 学校的行政管理, teachers 和 staff operated out of prefabricated trailers set up in rows surrounded by towering trees. An ambitious flurry of construction between 1970 和 1974 allowed 学生 和 teachers to move into custom-built academic facilities, 但当玛莎·詹姆斯1975年成为学校护士时, 她的办公室还在拖车里.

Janes acknowledged that the trailer was not ideal: equipped with an oversized sink from its previous use as a science lab, 它很小, 没有浴室,而且位于“山上”,这需要走很长一段路, 尤其是对最年轻的乌鸦来说.

不过,詹姆斯回忆说,“这招奏效了. 十大靠谱网赌排行在这个领域工作了很多年. 在现在的商业办公室上面有一整排拖车. Up from that, there was a paved walkway, 和 off of that was Headmaster Verne Hawes’ trailer.” 招生, the Business Office 和 other departments also operated out of this trailer network.

Anna Claire Murnick Price ' 03 她说她记得护士的拖车. “I used to always go visit when Coach Long would tell us we had to run ‘the mile’ in P.E., 和 Nurse Janes would always figure out that my stomach really didn’t hurt!”她说。.

重大升级

The nursing trailer remained in its place on the hill until it was relocated adjacent to the site of the new health center, 2001年开业. 詹姆斯记得从她的办公室可以看到建筑.

The new health center, part of a wave of construction that also gave the growing campus the Library & 技术中心(现为 凯姆创新与研究中心),温斯顿图书馆和墨菲大厅高中,是一个重大的升级. 除了一个检查室和办公空间, the building includes several private rooms where ailing 学生 can rest while awaiting their parents.

Another distinguishing feature of the Jones Health Center is that it is a st和-alone building — an aspect that has taken on greater importance amid the school’s myriad COVID-mitigation efforts. Co-Director of Clinical Services Rebecca Nelson 说 the setup of the health center, 她和同事吉娜·泰勒一起工作的地方, 已被证明在大流行期间对管理方案至关重要.

“When we met virtually with other nurses throughout North Carolina 和 with other independent schools, 十大靠谱网赌排行很少发现他们有类似于十大靠谱网赌排行的设施,尼尔森说. “事实上,它不属于一个部门, that we have multiple rooms 和 the physical capacity to make a quarantine room 和 still have a space for kids to come in 和 out — all of that made the planning [for a return to campus this fall] so much easier.” 

琼斯的儿子们, Jax 30柯尔特·杜德克31岁他们是现在的学生,呼应了这种观点. “The fact that the health center is a separate building means children or staff can quickly be separated from others if they begin to feel sick. I believe immediately removing a sick individual from the classroom environment is key in the ability to keep schools open,”她说。. “The Jones Health Center plays a critical role in our ability to open school 和 hold in-person classes.”

愿景越来越大


“Compassion, 清晰度和一致性”: The Jones Health Center’s Rebecca Nelson

Rebecca Nelson has served as Coordinator of the Jones Health Center since 2016 和, 还有高中辅导员肯德拉·瓦内尔, 是临床服务部的联席主任. 拥有杜克大学和北卡罗来纳大学研究生学位的执业护士, Nelson has brought an added dimension to the position — particularly with the challenges brought about by the p和emic.

当流行病的现实来袭, the first order of business was to review the protocols the school had in place for a p和emic 和 figure out what needed to be updated to address the particulars of COVID-19. 在学校领导之间的对话中发挥关键作用, 教育工作者, 设施经理等, 纳尔逊在破译所有最新信息的工作中起了带头作用.

Her input was especially critical as Ravenscroft developed a strategy to return to in-person learning in the fall.

“Rebecca’s calm presence has been a model for all of us in this time of uncertainty. 她回答家长的问题, 学生, 教职员工充满同情心, 清晰度和一致性,科琳·拉姆斯登, 负责学术和学生事务的副院长, 说. “Ravenscroft is h和ling the challenges of the p和emic in large part thanks to her knowledge 和 dedication 和 that of her colleague, 吉娜·泰勒.”

纳尔逊为学校对疫情的反应感到自豪. “I think we’ve done things that we didn’t think we’d be able to do,”她说。. “每个在校学生每天都要完成一份健康调查. 家长们正在量体温,十大靠谱网赌排行正在进行抽查, 十大靠谱网赌排行能保持距离, 甚至连学前班的学生都戴着口罩. 十大靠谱网赌排行不知道学前班的学生是否会戴口罩!”

毫无疑问,纳尔逊有一种热爱自己工作的气质. 她说:“这正是我喜欢护理工作的地方。. “Seeing the 学生 grow 和 learn, you get to see their excitement 和 their enthusiasm. And getting to talk to parents 和 letting them know how hard we’re working to take care of their kids, 他们真的很感激.”
