• Leah Huff

    Hi! My name is Leah Huff and I have been the nurse here at NJH for over 17 years. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about your student, medication at school, or any health care needs throughout the year.

    My email is leahhuff@nixaschools.net
    My office number is 417-724-6410.

    Many of the Health forms that the district requires can be found on the main district home page under the Health Services Department.
    *All medications are required to have a parent/guardians permission to administer at school, and all medications must be administered by the school nurse unless other authorized arrangements have been made.

    Please pay special attention to the fact that medications are to be dropped off or brought to school by a parent. No medications are allowed on a school bus. All medications need to be clearly labeled as to the name of the medication, the student the medication is to be given to, time of medication administration and signed by a parent or guardian.

    Due to Missouri State Immunization laws ALL INCOMING 8th grade students are required to have a TdaP and Meningitis immunization on file. Students routinely receive these immunizations after the age of 10- so your student MAY have already received these immunizations. In this case, an additional TdaP and meningitis is NOT needed, please simply update your child’s immunization record with the school nurse showing those immunizations. Students are not allowed to attend school unless adequately immunized.
    For more information check out: http://health.mo.gov/living/wellness/immunizations/schoolrequirements.php and refer to the School Immunization link.

    The school offers Acetaminophen (Tylenol), Ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin), Tums, Benedryl and cough drops to students with parent’s permission- contact your school nurse for questions.

    *The school does not provide feminine hygiene products so please remember to send your daughter with these items as necessary.
