I found some information on using SANE with a networked scanner. The man page is
sane-net. I added the IP of the OfficeJet to
sane-port 6566/tcp # SANE network scanner daemon was already in

After some searching, I found you can enter
http://<OfficeJet's IP> in your browser and scan from the web page! Project done–on to brushing their teeth.
