In Veracross we have now added a field to collect NIS faculty and staff blood type.   This information will be accessible by a limited number of NIS colleagues (School Nurse, IT and SLT).  Unfortunately, this information cannot be entered through the Veracross Portal, so if you would like to have your blood type entered into Veracross, please send Samantha an email indicating your blood type by Thursday, November 30.

Sharing this information is completely voluntary.
