We are excited to announce that Armstrong now has two registered nurses that job share. Kim Oliver who is entering her 5th year as Armstrong's school nurse will be joined by Melissa Turner who is a pediatric nurse beginning her second year in the school setting. To learn more about them and the wonderful Armstrong clinic, please visit the school website.
Our nurses are part of the team in caring for your child while at school. They are trained to handle emergencies, provide first aid, and also perform hearing and vision screening for kindergarten, 1st and 3rd grade and all new to district students. They also provide health care for students with special needs, allowing children to function well within the classroom and to be safe and well cared for during their school day.
Health lessons are taught to the students and staff by the nurses throughout the year. Additionally, the nurses ensure immunization compliance as per Texas law.
If your child has a special health need, such as diabetes, seizure disorder, anaphylactic food allergies, etc., please email or call our school nurses to arrange a time before school starts to discuss your child's needs. There will also be forms outside the clinic for you to fill out if your child needs to take a prescription medication while at school. Some of these forms will need to be filled out by your child's doctor or signed by the doctor.
Please call your school nurses with any questions you may have! Nurse Kim Oliver and Nurse Melissa Turner are eagerly looking forward to meeting you and your children!
Melissa Turner works Monday 7:30 to 3:30 and Friday 7:30 to 3:30, and Kim Oliver works Tuesday 7:30 to 3:30, Wednesday 7:30 to 3:30 and Thursday 7:30 to 3:30.
The Clinic opens at 7:50 AM. This is to give time for Kim and Melissa to get set up to successfully meet the needs of all of the children that will come into the clinic that day.
