2. Interview with librarian, school teacher, school nurse or administrator ˃ Community’s Health issues When interviewing a local school nurse, she said that seasonal allergies are her biggest battle right now with the kids. A lot of children are coming in to see her with “sneezing, watery eyes, and runny noses” (P. Smith, personal communication, May 23, 2019). She also said that it is difficult to get the children to understand the importance of washing their hands. The flu hit this elementary school hard this past flu season. ˃ Community’s Safety issues The school nurse stated that the main safety issue is parents are not teaching their kids the importance of safety. For example, wearing a helmet when riding a bike. Another safety issue is drivers around the school. Many kids “walk home and drivers are not paying close attention to these kids when school lets out” (P. Smith, personal communication, May 23, 2019). ˃ Strengths of the Community The school nurse said that the major strength in this community is how involved the parents are with their kids. The nurse said “the parents show up to every school function and have actually created a large PTA committee” (P. Smith, personal communication, May 23, 2019).

and well-kept. Community health wise, children are not educated on the importance of hand washing, so diseases will spread like wildfire in the local schools. In addition, most of the population is overweight. Their diet mostly consists of fried food and alcohol. These eating habits are being passed down from parents to their children. As far as safety, many kids “walk home and drivers are not paying close attention to these kids when school lets out” (P. Smith, personal communication, May 23, 2019). Also, children lack education regarding wearing helmets when bike riding outside. In addition, “although the homeless population is on the rise, it is an overall safe community” (K. Anderson, personal communication, May 24, 2019). 4465-5_19
