School Nurse

  The SJMS Clinic is available to all Stonewall Jackson Middle School students.  Please read below for some helpful information about our clinic.
  • All students entering sixth grade after July 1, 2006, are required by law to have tetanus, diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap) booster dose of vaccine if at least five years have passed since the last dose of tetanus-containing vaccine was administered.  This vaccination may be listed as T, Td, Dtap, and/or Tdap.  Please review your child's shot record.  If his or her last vaccination was before 2004, your child will need to have this booster shot administered before the first day of school.  Documentation that this booster or tetanus shot has been administered within the last five years must be taken to your child's school nurse.
  • It is recommended that you keep some Ibuprofen or Tylenol at school for your child, especially if they have frequent headaches, are getting braces, or for girls who are adjusting to monthly cramps.  Please remember that a parent must bring in the medicine and fill out a permission form.  Other medicines such as Sudafed or cough drops may also be kept by the school nurse if you have filled out the permission form.  This will allow the nurse to keep your child's medicine all year. 
  • If your child has a highly contagious illness, it is appreciated if you call the school nurse directly at 723-2278 or the Attendance number at 723-2267.  These illnesses include strep throat, pink eye, chicken pox, ringworm, mononucleosis, etc...  This way, the nurse can keep track of any trends in the school.
  • Please remind your child to use the clinic and not their cell phones to call or text when they are sick.  It is also against school policy to use cell phones during the school day.
  Please remember to call the attendance line if your child will be absent.
