COVID-19 Advisory Committee

In September of 2020, our School established a Multidisciplinary COVID-19 Advisory Committee (MCAC) to support the Administration in the implementation and adaptation of the School Reopening Plan. The purpose of this group is to bring together medical and professional stakeholders to collaborate with SPS Administration to advise and set appropriate, reasonable accommodations and considerations for the 2020-2021 school year grounded in previous and ongoing COVID-19 related experiences. The Advisory Committee will serve to supplement the Administration’s established feedback loops while providing medical, psychological, and organizational information on COVID-19 related matters.

Meet Valerie R. Hill, Certified School Nurse, MPH, BSN, RN

Valerie received her Bachelors of Science in Biology from Tougaloo College, her Masters of Public Health from Mercer University and her Bachelors of Nursing from Georgetown University.

Before making the career switch to school nursing, Valerie worked for over 10 years developing public health programs for various federal, state and local governments as well as non-profit agencies on issues concerning children and families.  A lifestyle shift founded her nursing career, and as a NICU nurse, she learned what it means to treasure every moment of this unpredictable life. In her spare time, Valerie treasures her time with her family and boxer puppy, Rocky.
