Clay Middle School Health Services


My name is Alison Young and I am the school nurse at Clay Middle School. I have been a registered nurse for 7 years with a B.S.N. from Indiana University. Prior to coming to Clay Middle I spent most of my nursing career in the Emergency Room at Carmel St. Vincent’s. 

I am so excited to be here at Clay this year and be a part of the Clay Nation family! I have two boys that are currently here at Clay in 6th and 8th grade.  My husband, Jeff, is a Science teacher at Carmel High School, and is the Visual Caption Head of the CHS Marching Greyhounds.  We also have the “best dog ever”, a Golden Doodle named Luke. :)

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, my hours are from 7:20-3:20 during the school year.  Looking forward to a happy, healthy year!!

Wash Your Hands

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, keeping hands clean is one of the most important ways to prevent the spread of infection and illness.

When washing hands with soap and water:

1. Wet your hands with warm water.

2. Apply a generous amount of soap.

3. Rub your hands together for 20 seconds.

4. Rinse your hands.

5. Dry your hands with a paper towel.

6. Use the paper towel to turn off the faucet and open the door.

If soap and clean water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub to clean your hands. Alcohol-based hand rubs significantly reduce the number of germs on skin and are fast-acting.

When using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer:

1. Apply product to the palm of one hand.

2. Rub hands together.

3. Rub the product over all surfaces of hands and fingers until hands are dry.  

Always wash your hands after using the bathroom, after changing diapers, after cleaning the toilet, after handling anything soiled with stool and before eating and preparing food.
