​I am happy to to be at Jacksboro Middle School all day this year!  I have some resource links below to help better inform you with tips and strategies to keep your child healthy.




Medicine to School 

  • All medication should be transported to the school by an adult and handed to another adult. ...along with completed form for prescription or OTC, and it must be new and unopened.
  • Your child should not carry his or her medication during school hours unless you, the doctor, and the school believe it is necessary for immediate access to emergency medication. ... An example would be asthma inhaler, epi pen, that the school nurse is aware and has MD order. 


7th Graders are required to be up to date on the Tdap booster and all other TN state required vaccines.  Please bring an updated TN Immunization Certificate to JMS school nurse to update student record if you have not already. 


Please take the time to view all the attachments and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
