Meet Our School Nurse, Mrs. Mace

Welcome to Cherry Tree Health Clinic!

My name is Angie Mace and I am excited to be your child’s school nurse.  Being a school nurse allows be to combine several of my passions:  health, wellness, and kids!

For my first degree, I graduated from the University of Dayton with a BS in Exercise Science.  Then, I helped run the wellness center for Honda of America, Mfg. in Anna, Ohio.  After working for several years, my husband moved us to Carmel, and we started our family.  I was fortunate to stay home with my kids during their early years, but then I decided to go back to school for nursing.  I earned my BSN from Marian University and then began working in the Progressive Cardiac Care Unit at St. Vincent’s Hospital.  After time in critical care, I moved my career towards school nursing by working at Clay Middle School.  And, now I am looking forward to helping your children learn more about wellness and keeping them healthy to focus on their academics.

My clinic hours will be 8:00 am – 3:00 pm each school day.  I am responsible for caring for our sick and injured students and staff members.  I will administer daily medications, perform medical procedures, and work with families to maintain and improve their child’s well-being.  Please contact me at 846-3086, or email me with any questions or concerns.

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.
