Welcome to the R.B. Hunt Elementary School
The clinic provides a vital service for our students at R.B. Hunt.
My hours in the clinic are from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday-Friday while school is in session. Please call ahead if you would like to meet with me one-on-one, or just pop in anytime to say Hello. If you have any specific questions or concerns feel free to contact me. I will be happy to answer any questions
Email me, call me (904)547-7964, or send me a fax: (904) 547-7955.
All school activities can be found at the R.B. Hunt website. The school year is a busy time and we want to do the best things possible to maintain a safe environment. Remember that the little things count as your child grows and develops self reliance. When making daily choices for simple things like what to wear to school, please consider school guidelines. The Student Conduct Code is here.

What if your child needs to take medication during school hours? Click here for a medication administration check list. Medication Authorization Form School Permission will need to be signed by the parent/guardian and completed by your pediatrician. Just a gentle reminder about medications in Elementary School, it’s not the same as when we went to school. Over the counter medications (OTC) include: Chap-stick, Sunscreen, Cough drops, Antacids, medicated lotions, Tylenol, Benadryl, Motrin etc. These meds can be kept in the clinic with a completed Medication Administration Form. In Elementary school, students are not allowed to keep any OTC or Rx medications in their possession. Please remember that your school does not keep stock medications. Thanks in advance for taking a minute to review the Medication Policy.
