School Nurse Updates and News
Check this section for up to date health news from Nurse Aimée. I will update on illness related issues and do my best to leave you with a little health nugget each month.
01/25/2019 – I am starting to see an increase in flu at school. Please remain diligent in helping our students stay healthy by reminding them to wash their hands with soap and water. Symptoms that I’m seeing with the flu: stomachache, headache and low grade fever.
12/11/2018 – Flu and RSV season are here! I’m pleased to say that here at Kiroli, we have not had many flu cases this season. That doesn’t mean that flu is not going to visiting our hallways. Last year, we had a very late flu season. Please keep reminding your children to wash their hand frequently and cough in their elbows.

About Nurse Aimée
Aimée Swanner is our school nurse. Known affectionately as “Nurse Aimée”, this is her fourth year at Kiroli. A Louisiana Tech graduate with over 20 years of maternal/child experience, Aimée began her career in the school system when her oldest son started kindergarten at Kiroli. Before becoming a school nurse, she worked in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St. Francis Medical Center. You can still find her there on the weekends and during school holidays.
Nurse Aimée says, “I love my job as the nurse at Kiroli. I hope every child feels love and compassion each time they visit my office, pass me in the halls or see me out in public. We all need a little extra kindness in our life. I hope my Kiroli kiddos find that kindness in me and my nursing care.”
