Dear Parents and Guardians:
Hi! My name is Kristen Swisher and I am the school nurse at Harrison Elementary. I also am the nurse at Mid City High School and Adams Elementary. Dominique Nuci is our health para and will be in the office everyday and I will be in office at least one and a half days a week. Please call me anytime with any questions or concerns at (563) 723-6500. I look forward to meeting each and everyone of you.
As we start the school year I thought it might helpful for you to have a little information about the nurses office and how things go:
- If your child has a change in their health status, needs to take medication at school, develops a chronic disease or a communicable disease please call me.
- If your child is ill and they have to stay home from school please call into the office and give two symptoms as to why your child is staying home.
