nurse christie peaceWelcome to the Mechanicsville High School Clinic!

My Name is Christie Peace. I have been caring for Mechanicsville students since 1988. I am here to help our students feel their best so they can learn. Throughout the high school years I hope to establish a relationship with you and your child. I make every effort to keep you informed of injuries and complaints as needed while supporting your student’s class attendance and success. Whenever possible, I like to see your student return to the classroom but fully understand the moments when it is best to go home or seek medical care. I truly respect your role as a parent and will do my best to work with you to do the right thing. Never hesitate to call me.       

Learning is a challenge when teens are hungry, sick, tired, or stressed, but going home is not always the answer. When students are having a bad day, encourage them to visit the clinic so we can find solutions. There are many caring adults at Mechanicsville who are capable of helping your child through a situation, so encourage them to seek that help. 

Thank you for trusting me with your children. It is my privilege to care for them, to watch them mature, and become healthy young adults.

Each student should have a medical card on file. Information may be updated by calling the clinic or sending a note or email.  Keep me informed when your student is diagnosed with a new condition, a new allergy or has a medication change. Contact information should also be kept up to date. This is essential in emergencies.

Epi-Pens & Inhalers

Students are allowed to carry inhalers and epi-pens if a written order is received from the physician stating they may do so.

Health Screenings

Health screenings are conducted each year as a free service to Hanover County students. This is done to identify any physical problems which may impact their ability to learn. 10th graders are screened for vision and hearing. If your child has an abnormal screening, a letter will be sent home indicating the need to follow up with your family physician.
