    I am your child’s Registered Nurse here at WECC. My name is Mrs. Jenna Hillman, but your child calls me Nurse Jenna. During my 11-year nurse career, I have had the privilege to work in many different areas such as: Emergency department, Internal medicine, Family practice, Dermatology, and for the last five years as a school nurse for the Waynesville R-VI School district. I am truly excited to have the opportunity of getting to know your child, and to care for him/her in the nurse office. Please feel free to call with any questions or concerns for I am here for the student, family, and staff.

     My goal is in advancing the well-being, academic success, and lifelong achievement of students. 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?

    Coronavirus/COVID-19 Screening Checklist- Children should be screened daily for symptoms and exposure prior to coming to school. 

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

    • Has a fever of 100degrees 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 this 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.

    72 Hour Rule:

    • FEVER:Keep your child home until his or her fever has been gone WITHOUT medication for 72 hours. Colds can be contagious for at least 48 hours. Returning to school too soon may slow recovery and make others sick.
    • VOMITING AND/OR DIARRHEA:Keep your child home for 72 hours after the LAST time he or she vomited or had diarrhea.


    *ANTIBIOTICS: Keep your child home until 24 hours after the first dose of antibiotics. This is 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.
