• Welcome to the 20-21  school nurse page.  We have been away from each other for several months and during those months I am hoping you have worked hard and learned a lot! Now we will be back together soon and I know the learning will continue.
    I am hoping that  we will  continue with the  health related programs we have always done at Dewey. As soon as I have been given permission to start those programs I will begin to send up permission signs. Please remember  to fill out the forms completely and have your child to return them to the nurse. I am hoping to have our dental partners , flu partners and vision partners to return to Dewey in the 20-21 school year. My students and their parents enoy getting health care within the school day.
    Oh I forgot to introduce myself!!  My name is Jane Ann Sykes and I have been a school year at Dewey School for several years. In fact I am seeing some of my first students sending their children and grand children to Dewey School. My office is located in the main office suite and my hours are 8am until 3:30pm until further notice.  My phone number is 314-645-4845 and feel free to call with any concerns. My email address is jane.sykes@slps.org. Keep in mind that due to the virsus visits to my office by parents and other concerned adults are very limited.
    If your child requires medication during the school day please contact me so that I can send necessary paperwork home. THis paperwork needs to be signed by health care professional and parents and then returned to school with the medication by the parent or another adult. If your child is sick please keep them at home! If you have any questions about this please call prior to sending your child to school. If the doctor has told you that your child needs to remain at home please follow the doctor's orders.
    Lastly pelase make sure the school has the most updated phone number so I can reach you in case of emergency. It would not hurt to have several back up numbers in case you can not be located. If you ned to make any changes in your emergency contatc list please call the school with any updates you would like for us to make. In case of emergency I will call parents list and then go down the line with anyone you have listed for a contact or a person that can pick up your childin case of emergency.
    Again welcome back to Dewey!! I am looking forward to a healthy school year! Please call or emial with any ocnerns.
