Calumet New Tech Nurse

Roxanne Shimek RN has been with the Lake Ridge School District just over ten years.  She has worked in many different medical settings including Med-Surg nursing, Cardiology,  Gyne-Oncology,  Home Health management, and Urgent Care.  She and her husband, Jim (who taught at Calumet several years ago) live in Schererville and enjoy spending time with their three grown children and 2 granddaughters.

This is the first year Mrs. Shimek has been able to dedicate herself to just one school.  In addition she is the supervisory nurse for the district.  Please feel free to call or email her at any time.    219-838-6990 x 609

Covid-19 information
On the main district page you will find current updates about the covid-19 pandemic.  As of 6/1/20 specific directives have not been received from the Indiana Dept. of Education regarding the upcoming school year.  I believe it is reasonable to expect the use of masks and the continuation of social distancing to help protect students and staff.  More information will be coming.
New Immunization Requirements for ALL High School Students!!!
All students are required to have current immunization records prior to the beginning of the school year, according to IC 20-34-4 in the Indiana State code. 

This is the first year the state of Indiana has required the Hepatitis A series for school attendance for all high school students. There are 2 shots in this series. Some of the physicians may already have your student up-to-date, but the majority do not. 

IN ADDITION - All seniors must have had their 2nd meningitis shot.  NOTE this is another MCV4, not the meningitis B shot which is recommended but not required.

Information regarding hours and arrangements to receive immunizations at the Lake County Public Health Department and the Gary Health Department can be found on the main district site.
