Hello and Welcome to Benton Middle School. Serving as the Benton School Nurse since 2011, I look forward to assisting each student with their healthcare needs. I am a registered nurse with 34 years of experience, and have 19 years of school health nursing. My past nursing expereinces include serving in the United States Army as a Nurse Corps Officer. A graduate of the Army's Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Nursing Program, I had the priviliedge of serving both at Fitzsimmons Army Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Other clincal nursing work experiences include Hematology/Oncology, Case Management Program Manager, and Utilization Review Nurse. Both of our children were students at Benton, and I have the highest regard for the teachers and staff who work here. I hope that your experences are very positive, and I am happy to be a member of a team that cares for your student. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. Esther Krukar, R.N., B.S.N..

Medication Policy for PWCS
Download Medication to be given @school form
School personnel cannot administer ANY medication until a form, signed by the parent, is on file in the clinic of the school. All prescription medication must also have a physician’s signature on the back of the form before a prescription medication can be administered. Parents must personally deliver prescription medications and signed forms to the school nurse.
ALL medication, prescription and over-the-counter (i.e., Tylenol, Advil, Cough Drops, etc.) need a signed medical form prior to being brought to the school. It also MUST be in the original container and kept in the clinic. It should be in small amounts because storage space is very limited.
