School Nurse

Nurse Lori Catrow

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Lori Catrow and this is my 11th year as a school nurse. 

I love being the school nurse for your child! Please call (304) 725-9587 or email me if you have concerns, questions, or need assistance with any health related resources. Keeping the children healthy and ready to learn is my top priority. I am the nurse at two schools this year. My hours at North Jefferson are 12:00 - 3:45.

Medications at School This is a reminder that we are happy to give medications at school if your child needs them during the school day. However, we CANNOT dispense any medications to your child unless we have a signed JCS Medication Order Form on file. This includes over the counter medications. The form must be signed by a doctor.

Contagious Illnesses in Schools Washing hands, covering sneezes, and staying out of public places when ill (or when others are ill) is essential to preventing the spread of germs. Also remember that despite concerns about school attendance, your child's health (and the health of other children) is most important of all. For this reason, we ask you to please: 
* Let us know if your child is absent with a contagious illness such as strep throat, the flu, impetigo, fifth's disease, etc.

* Keep you child home if he/she has a fever. A fever indicates that your child has an infection that could be passed to other students. If you give your child Motrin or Tylenol, the fever will, of course, disappear, but he/she will still be contagious to others. Children must be fever-free for 24 hours (without medication) before returning to school. 

The following students must stay home from school: those with active vomiting, diarrhea, fivers over 100 degrees, serious untreated injuries, contagious illnesses, or those who are obviously unwell.
