Jefferson Parish Public School System Medication Policy:
My name is Jenny Lagos and I am one of two nurses at Grace King High School. I graduated from LSU Health Science Center with my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing in December of 2008. My nursing background includes 8 years at Children’s Hospital working in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. This is my 5th year working for Jefferson Parish Public School System, four of which have included servicing Grace King. This warms my heart dearly as I love the relationship I have developed with our wonderful and diverse students.
My name is Sarah Manale and I am a part time nurse at Grace King. I graduated from Charity Nursing School in 2007 and obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing in May of 2014. I have been a school nurse since April of 2016. This is my first year at Grace King and it has been a great experience. The faculty and staff truly care about the students and will go above and beyond to see them thrive as young adults.
