My name is Tina Varney.  I am a registered nurse and have worked at Jonesville Community Schools since 1999.  I love getting to know and take care of your children!  My office is at the Elementary and I spend one day a week in the other buildings.  I will post my schedule here once I have it finalized.  If you have any questions or suggestions please do not hesitate to give me a call or stop in and say Hi!

The above message is from The National Association of School Nurses Better Health. Better Learning Tool Kit.  Too many communities, school leaders, legislators and policy-makers don't fully understand the vital role School Nurses play in both education and community health.  I will be posting key information, facts and statistics on this site.  Visit often as I add new information throughout the year!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please contact me at 517/849-9175, ext. 1404 or the direct line to my office at 517/826-7114. You can also contact me at tvarney@jonesvilleschools.org
