    A Note from our Nurse


    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.


    Harrison has been awarded $40,000 from The Scott County Regional Authority for our ADA Accessible Outdoor Learning Environment. We’ll be updating our playground!!
