    I am your child’s Nurse here at WECC. My name is Andrea Landreth, but your child calls me Nurse Andrea. I have been an LPN for 5 years and am very passionate about my career. I worked in long-term care until I had my son in 2020. Becoming a mom changed my plans for my future, as most of you can probably relate to. I started in Waynesville School District as a para here at Williams and fell in love with working with our youngest learners. Every day is a new adventure and we learn through play. I became the nurse in October of the 2021-2022 school year and have enjoyed this new and exciting position. I am truly excited to have the opportunity of getting to know your child, and to care for him/her in the nurse's office. Please feel free to call with any questions or concerns as I am not only here for your students, but their families as well. 

     My goal is to provide a safe place for the booboos and sick days. As a school nurse, I promote health and safety; aid in preventive services; intervene with actual and potential health problems; deliver emergency care; provide referrals and/or case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family abilities for self-management, adaptation, self-advocacy, and learning.

    Sick Day Guidelines

    Should I keep my child home or send him or her to school?

    School policy (and/or state law) requires a child to stay home if he or she:

    • Has a fever of 100 degrees or higher
    • Has been vomiting or has diarrhea
    • Has symptoms that keep your child from participating in school, such as:
      • Very tired or lack of appetite
      • Cough that he or she cannot control
      • Headache, body aches or ear ache
      • Sore throat-a little sore throat is OK for school, but a bad sore throat could be strep throat, even if there is no fever. Other signs of strep throat in children include a headache, upset stomach, or skin rash. Call your doctor if your child has these signs. A special test is needed to know if it is strep throat.
      • Keep your child home if he or she is coughing or sneezing often because this easily and quickly spreads sickness to others.


    *ANTIBIOTICS: Keep your child home until 24 hours after the first dose of antibiotics. This is so the child can be monitored at home for possible reactions to new medications.

    We often have many children with colds coming to school, and each one is passing their sickness to others. Please help others from becoming sick by keeping your child home. 

    For more information, or if you have questions, please contact your school nurse.
