School Nurse

  • My name is Janet Jacobson RN, LSN.  I am very pleased to work with your children.  My goal is to provide for their health and safety to the best of my ability.  I am at Adams school 4 days a week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Katie Adams, LSN will be at Adams every Wednesday. To reach us directly please call 651-888-7601 or email school- janetdian.jacobson@spps.org or kathryn.adams@spps.org.

    I am happy to visit with families about your child's health conditions, vision or hearing referrals, immunizations, sports physicals, early childhood screening, etc.  I am able to assist families in obtaining low cost or sliding fee medical service, and provide information on other community services as well.   Please inform me if your child has medical needs during the school day such as asthma, diabetes, ADD/ADHD, seizures, allergies, etc.,  so we can work together with your child's teacher and our office staff to be prepared to assist your child as needed.

    When should a child stay home from school? Any fever over 100 degrees unaided by tylenol or motrin, vomiting within the past 24 hours, recurrent diarrhea within the past 24 hours, undiagnosed whole body rashes. If you have a question if your child should attend school please call me or the front office staff to consult with us about your child's condition--we are happy to help you. 

    If your child has been ill with a communicable disease such as strep throat, chicken pox, scabies, ringworm, or unusual rashes please inform the front office staff at 298-1595.   Children with strep throat or bacterial pink eye should be taking prescription antibiotics for 24 hours before they return to the classroom.

    Does your child have a health condition affecting their learning in the classroom? I collaborate with the special education team and child study team at Adams in assessing and evaluating student needs for services and the 504 team to determine if students need to increase their success in the classroom.

    Healthy students are the best learners!!

    Sincerely,

    Janet
