Ms. Lavinia Yalengbiye

My name is Songo Lavinia Yalengbiye. I go by my middle name Lavinia and referred to by the students as "Nurse Y" (my last name is a tongue twister). 

I graduated from the University of Missouri-St. Louis with my Bachelors In Science of Nursing. My career journey includes working as an Emergency Room nurse. Certainly working as a school nurse has been like a difference in day and night. I am so excited to work with the staff and students at Meramec and hope to get to know all the families that support our students. 

Part of my duty in this position is to ensure that all of the students and staff maintain and remain in good health. At this time, with Covid being a health threat, all personnel entering the school building will have their temperature taken and be screened for covid symptoms. If there are any questions about the signs and symptoms of Covid or where to get tested, feel free to contact me.
