Healthy Scholars Learn Better

My name is Kristen Barber and I am a registered nurse with a background in pediatric nursing. I am privileged to serve as the school nurse for John Adams Academy at the Lincoln, El Dorado Hills and Roseville Campuses. It was an honor to join the JAA team in the 2018-2019 school year. My role as school nurse is to keep our scholars safe and healthy while at school and encourage them to move forward making healthy choices for a lifetime. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with your health related concerns or questions. You can reach me via email at: or leave me a voicemail at 916-260-4821.
Humbly and Respectfully, 
Kristen Barber, RN, BSN, PHN

A new year is starting and with that comes a lot of excitement and questions. Please feel free to reach out to me or your sites Health Room staff member with any health related questions, at any time.


Did you know that immunizations required for school attendance and medication administration at school are governed by both the California Department of Education and the California State Legislature? At John Adams Academy, our health office is designed to run in a way that is in compliance with California State Law, and follows best practice guidelines set forth by the California School Nurse Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics.


Please see the links on the left of this page for current immunization requirements for school attendance. Links are listed below were you can find forms to be filled out by you and your child’s pediatrician should your child require medication at school (this includes over the counter medications like Advil, Tylenol or Excedrin).
