Rachel Doedan

District Nurse


The Cherokee Community school nurses are committed to providing your child with the best care possible in our schools. We know the value of having trained staff to deal with whatever medical or health issue your child encounters and will do what we can to meet the needs of your child in the school environment. We will communicate and collaborate with you and others in the medical field when permission is granted by you or when necessary (as in case of an emergency). We understand the responsibility we have been given and will do what we can to ensure an educational environment that promotes optimal health, wellness, and the safety of all students.

Below are forms and resources. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at 712-225-6760 or email me at rdoedan@ccsd.k12.ia.us
