Welcome to JSE! I am Kathy Maniszko, the school nurse at John Simatovich Elementary School. I have enjoyed being a school nurse for 23 years, and I am thankful to be the nurse at such a wonderful school! I work with our students, families and staff to promote student success at school by meeting their health needs.

A bit about Mrs. Maniszko:

I attended Triton Community College for nursing and I am a Licensed Practical Nurse. I have been in school nursing for twenty three years and the school nurse at JSE for twelve years. I am married have two adult daughters and live in Westville. All of my free time is spent outdoors gardening .

Nurse Schedule:

I see children as soon as the buses arrive until they leave at dismissal. Parent school communication is essential and I will contact you when needed or if your child has fails any of the school screenings. During the school year I frequently go into the classrooms to talk about germs, hand washing, and personal hygiene.

Please feel free to call or e mail me anytime with any updates or concerns about your child’s health. I am available everyday during the school hours of 8am-4pm. I look forward to the school year!
