At the last staff meeting for all Portsmouth Public Schools school nurses for the 2018-19 school year, Olive Branch Preschool Nurse Frances Johnson was named the 2019 School Nurse of the Year.

“She takes care of her students, works well with parents and staff, and is organized,” said Dr. Darlene Mueller, health services supervisor for Portsmouth Public Schools. “Her documentation is thorough. She readily volunteers to help other nurses and is a team player…she is a nurse who truly works hard to do what is expected.”
