Team work helps schools meet First Day Compliance challenge

Posted by Dr. Sharon Desmoulin-Kherat on 8/21/2018 2:00:00 PM

Making sure Peoria Public School students have met all medical requirements by the first day of school is a challenge for our school staff, particularly nurses, principals and assistant principals and for busy parents. Here is a note a received this week from one of the school nurses on our PPS team.  

Dr. Kherat, 

My name is Sheri Buskirk and I am the school nurse at Peoria High School. I am writing you this note because I cannot ignore the outstanding leaders you have at my school.


I was hired towards the middle of last year, therefore, this is my first go around with medical compliance, as I spent my first 22 years as a nurse with a cardiovascular surgical group in Peoria. It has been a learning curve transitioning to a high school setting.


Little did I know, I would not be tackling this task on my own. Dr. Annette Coleman and her assistant principals are amazing. Not only with students, but their parents and anyone who enters Peoria High School. Including me!  They have helped, called, visited homes and offered any assistance possible to me in spite of their already overwhelming schedules.


Although I have only met you in passing, thank you. Thank you for leading this district and thank you for employing outstanding individuals who will do whatever they can to make the students of Peoria Public Schools a success.
