Hello, this is Jane Manderfield, RN, BSN.  I am the School Nurse for Challenger again this year.  My scheduled days in the building will be Wednesdays, alternating Thursday mornings and afternoons, and Friday afternoons.  I may be reached via email at or via my District 20 cell phone at 499-3480 throughout the week during regular school hours.

I graduated from Emory University (Atlanta, GA) with a B.S. degree in Nursing and have worked as an R.N. for 39 years.  I also have an M.S. degree in Actuarial Science.  Bob (my hubby) and I have enjoyed living in Colorado Springs for the past 22+ years.  All three of our sons have been educated through Mountain View, Challenger, and Pine Creek!

NEW policy for selected Over-the-Counter Medications

Parents may now bring the following over-the-counter medications for their student to the Health Room WITHOUT needing a health care provider signature:  Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, antacids, anti-histamines (one dose only), and cough drops (no essential oils or herbal medications).  Parents will still sign the Permission to Administer Medication form when bringing the medication to the Health Room.  Dosing will be per the original packaging directions for age and/or weight.  Students with fevers over 100.5 will be sent home, per District 20 Illness Guidelines, and NO Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen will be administered.  Students will not be allowed to self-carry these medications but can access through the Health Room.

18-19 Vision and Hearing Screenings

​The district Vision and Hearing Screen Team will be at Challenger on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 for their screenings.  This is a little later in the school year than our typical fall schedule.  Please remember to have your student wear their eyeglasses or contact lenses that day!
