Melissa Jeffries
HCPS District Nurse and Health Coordinator

Welcome to School Health Services.  My name is Melissa Jeffries and I am the school nurse for the Henry County District, which includes all five Henry County schools and the Early Childhood Learning Center.  I have been a nurse for 28 years with the majority of my background in pediatrics.  This is my 14th year with the Henry County School District and I am thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful organization and community.

My schedule is based solely on the needs of the student’s and staff in our district and will be subject to change due to meetings, emergencies, or other obligations. I am always available to discuss your child’s medical needs or issues so please do not hesitate to contact me.  I can be reached by email or by calling the Board of Education.

Darlene Tipton is the district health assistant and this is her 5th year in this role.  She also worked for 2 years at HCHS as a special education instructional assistant.  Mrs. Tipton is a long-time resident of Henry County and managed Hawkins Farm Center in Port Royal for several years.  She has two daughters, one of which is a teacher at Campbellsburg Elementary.

We are both very excited for this school year and look forward to serving the students and families of Henry County Schools.  Please feel free to contact us at anytime.
