    Mrs. Tammie Swain, EJES Nurse

  • Welcome to the EJES Ms. Tammie's Corner!

    At East Jackson, my main priority is the health and well-being of our students. I take pride in giving the best care to all of our students so that optimal learning can take place in the classroom.  If your student needs medication of any kind during school hours, a parent or guardian MUST bring the medication in and fill out paperwork. Please do not send medicine in your child's bookbag. I look forward to working with our EJES students and helping them be successful this year!
