Nurse's Office Calendar
Jenks Wild Camp
Please bring all medication (in a labeled Zip Loc bag) to your student's teacher the morning of departure. Do not bring to the JEI Nurses Office.
Medication must be in its original container (both prescription and non-prescription medication with the original label intact and check expiration date). Non-prescription medication must be labeled age appropriately. Parent or Guardian must fill out a Request to Give Medication Form. Place all medication and form(s) in a Zip Loc bag. If medication is not properly labeled, it will NOT be given. Please send just enough medication for the duration of camp.
Medication will not be sent home with the student. Parents must pick up all medication from your students teacher on the return from camp. Any remaining medication will be sent to the nurses office; medication not picked up after 7 days will be discarded.
Vision and Hearing Screening
Dates will be scheduled for all 5th grade teams. Please check your students agenda for dates. If your child wears glasses or contact lenses please have them bring them to school to be worn during the vision screening.
Scoliosis screenings will begin for 6th grade students. Please check your students agenda for dates scheduled. All 6th grade students will be screened for scoliosis which is a lateral curving of the spine that can develop in pre and early adolescence. A 30 second postural screening between ages 10-14 can make a lifetime of difference. Students are screened individually to insure their privacy. Students will be asked to remove their shirts to allow the nurse to check for symmetry of collarbones, shoulder blades and any any obvious curving of the spine. Girls are screened with the bras or an undershirt on. Students are screened in 6th and 8th grade at Jenks Public Schools. The incidence of scoliosis is 5-8% of the population. When scoliosis is identified early, non-operative treatment is highly successful. School screenings and recognition by the primary care physician lead to proper early treatment.
In the spring semester the nurses will be doing instruction on adolescent growth and development and AIDS education. Please refer to the specific topic listed on this website for more information concerning each of these areas.
