Nurse Amanda

Hello and welcome!

I'm Amanda Anderson and I am the School Nurse here at Jacques Memorial School! 

I have been a nurse for the past 12 years.  My experience includes medical-surgical nursing, outpatient primary care nursing, pediatric office nursing, and home care pediatric and maternal child health nursing.  I am passionate about my career and working with the pediatric population and their families.
It is important that if at anytime you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s health or medical well being, you reach out to me! 

I’m looking forward to connecting with you all. As the school year progresses, I hope this page can be a helpful resource for you and your family.

Thank YOU and have a HAPPY and HEALTHY summer!

THANK YOU to ALL of the Jacques Memorial families and staff!  The 2021-2022 school year was wonderful!  My first year as the Jacques Memorial School nurse couldn't have gone any better!  Its an honor to have had the opportunity to work with all the children and their families this school year.  Please enjoy the summer months; may they be happy and healthy! 

I look forward to seeing familiar faces next school year and meeting many new ones too!

Springing Into Summer!

Thankfully, the beautiful weather has arrived! Please remember to do daily tick checks.  Ticks can be as small as a tip of a pencil to as large as a raisin.  Once removed, please be sure to mark it on your calendar, as a reference, in case any symptoms related to tick born illnesses develop.  

Also, don't forget to stock up on bug repellent and sun screen.  It is recommended to purchase these annually as efficacy decreases with time. 

I hope everyone is getting outside and enjoying  the sun and fresh air (when pollen levels aren't too high).  As always, please reach out to me with any questions or concerns!    

Influenza A

Hello!  Just a quick FYI regarding current trends here at Jacques.  Over the last week, we are seeing a lot of cold and flu symptoms.  There have been several confirmed diagnoses of Influenza A.  Covid-19 is still circulating but at a much lower rate than seen earlier in the year.  Please continue to keep students home if they are not feeling well.  Practice excellent handwashing.  Encourage covering coughs and sneezes.  And as always, reach out to me with any questions!  Thank you!
